Hartley signs holding deal with CW


Justin Hartley, most recently known for his role as Oliver Queen -- aka the Green Arrow -- on the CW's "Smallville," has inked a talent holding deal with the network.

Hartley's association with the CW extends beyond "Smallville," which he was tapped to join in 2006 starting with the show's sixth season. He also played the title role in the network's Aquaman pilot, which had been in contention for fall 2006, and more recently was in the CW pilot "Spellbound" as well as the network's "Eight Days a Week."

His credits include the upcoming Warner Bros. feature film "Spring Breakdown" opposite Amy Poehler, Will Arnett, Parker Posey and Rachel Dratch.

Hartley is repped by Innovative Artists and managers Ted Gekis and Daniel Ribera.
