Ever since we heard that strange, robotic voice in the doorway of Grayson Manor in Revenge’s Season 2 finale, we’ve been dying to know who will actually be cast in the role of Victoria Grayson’s Son, Patrick Harper. Now E! News reports that CW star Justin Hartley will take on the major role in Season 3.

The 36-year-old actor is best known for his role as Oliver Queen (aka the Green Arrow) on Smallville and also had a leading role on the CW’s Emily Owens M.D. as Will Collins before the show was cancelled.

E! reports that the character of Patrick will “appear in a multi-episode arc and we’ll meet him in the Season 3 premiere this fall.”

We know little about Patrick other than the fact that Victoria had him when she was 16 after being sexually abused by her mother’s boyfriend. She ended up giving the boy to a Catholic nun in order to go to art school, with the promise that the nun would never tell Patrick of his mother’s identity.

Emily Thorne later discovered that Victoria paid Patrick $5 million to stay away, but by the end of the show’s second season, she longed to be reunited with her long-lost son. We doubt her firstborn will have any warm and fuzzy feelings toward the woman who abandoned him, but now we know he’s cute enough to stay around for quite some time.

Move over Daniel Grayson!

One thing we will say for Victoria, she’s an awful mother, but she can produce some attractive children.
