Don’t be sad that Lifetime will soon air the final installment of its Flowers in the Attic movie series, because the April 12 finale, Seeds of Yesterday, brings boy bander James Maslow’s spectacular abs with it.
Maslow, alum of the Nickelodeon series and boy band Big Time Rush, stars as Bart Sheffield, the son of incestuous marrieds Cathy (Rachael Carpani) and Chris (Jason Lewis). And in this Fifty Shades of Rococo clip above, a towel-wrapped Maslow shows off his finely-toned abs as he prepares to welcome his ‘rents to Foxworth Hall, the estate of his late great-grandfather, Malcolm.
The whole Dollanganger family is gathering at Foxworth for the reading of Malcolm’s will, and the impeccably dressed Bart is expecting to inherit the biggest piece of his grandpop’s cash.
Oh, but back to the abs, yes, that is the same Jason Lewis who used to frequently show off his own toned tummy as Samantha’s boyfriend Smith on Sex and the City. Now he’s playing a cardigan-wearing dad.
Lifetime has already aired adaptations of Flowers in the Attic and Petals on the Wind, the first two books in V.C. Andrews’s Dollanganger family series. A third movie, If There Be Thorns, airs on April 5, and will find Cathy and Chris’s secret pasts being revealed to those closest to them… with a little help from their mother, Corinne (Heather Graham), who dons a disguise and moves in next door to her children. (We hate it when that happens!)
If There Be Thorns airs on April 5 and Seeds of Yesterday airs on April 12 on Lifetime.
