Young and Restless alum plays hot teacher.

Soaps.com has learned that The Young and the Restless alum, Justin Hartley, who played Adam Newman, has a new comedy movie entitled Little coming out in the spring. Hartley took to Instagram to alert his followers and share a trailer for the film. The actor, who also played Fox Crane on daytime’s Passions, captioned the post, “Little secret, big problems. Happy to share the screen in @littlethemovie with these hilarious humans.”

Little tells the story of a woman who has the opportunity to relive the life of her younger self just when the pressures of adult life have begun to overwhelm her. The trailer shows the main character, a boss at her workplace, being mean to co-workers and other people, and when a young girl wishes she was her size…she wakes up ‘little’ again. Given that she’s now an adolescent girl, she must go back to school, and hilarious encounters occur with her mother and her very attractive male teacher, who is played by Hartley.
