‘This Is Us’ star Justin Hartley stopped by Fox’s ‘The F Word’ for a cannoli filling contest with Cheryl Hines, and now we want dessert.

More from This Is Us

Summer hiatus has taken the stars of This Is Us to some rather unexpected places. Milo Ventimiglia fronted a charity campaign, Mandy Moore headlined a shark movie and launched a home decor line, and Sterling K. Brown proved a Marvel Universe dad is a hot dad. Did we anticipate that our favorite Pearsons would be doing good and dominating elsewhere? No, but we’re so glad that they have.

Justin Hartley joined his castmates in the unexpected summer fun when he stopped by Gordon Ramsay’s Fox cooking reality series The F Word. If you’re unfamiliar with the format and premise of The F Word, the series is based on the British series of the same name in which families compete in a high-stakes live culinary battle judged by celebrities and other VIP guests. The F Word also features Ramsay talking with the visiting celebrities and hitting the field to catch up with additional guests. Jamie Foxx, Snoop Dogg, Andy Cohen, Katy Perry, and many other famous faces have appeared on the series. But Justin Hartley’s appearance on the series has us craving dessert.

Who knew that behind that handsome smile and those enviable acting chops was a low key pastry chef? In a competition with actress Cheryl Hines, the pair attempt to fill and decorate as many cannoli as they can in one minute. The pressure was on, and it led one of the competitors to cheat the system. However, Justin proved his prowess in the kitchen. He’s a man of many talents, that Justin Hartley.

But it wasn’t all fun and games on The F Word. Gordon Ramsay sat down with Justin, and the actor otherwise known as Kevin Pearson spilled some interesting details on his upcoming wedding and, of course, the second season of This Is Us. Will Kevin be heading back in time or into the future in Season 2? See what Justin Hartley had to say and watch the hilarious cannoli competition in the video clip below!

Next: Kevin Pearson will be the ultimate Transformation Tuesday on 'This Is Us'

As Toby once said, dessert is outr life’s work, and we wouldn’t be mad if Justin Hartley whipped us up a few cannoli. But now our minds are racing with the possibility of jumping forward even more in the This Is Us timeline in Season 2. Do you want to skip to the future with the Pearsons? Let us know in the comments, and keep the conversation going on Twitter and Facebook!

This Is Us returns for Season 2 on Tuesday, September 26 at 9/8c on NBC.
