There is only one Justin Hartley.

Glen Powell reminded the world of that on Jan. 7 after The Hollywood Reporter mixed up the two actors in a post on X while covering the Golden Globe Awards.

“Glen Powell has arrived for tonight’s 2024 #GoldenGlobes ceremony,” the publication captioned a picture of Hartley, decked out in a tan tuxedo with a black bow tie.

Powell took a screenshot of the post and had a little bit of fun with it.

“I think this is the perfect time to announce that @justinhartley and I will be starring in the most boring body-swap movie of all time,” he joked.

For its part, The Hollywood Reporter rolled with the punches.

"well played @glenpowell — ... and apologies! We have our glasses on now!" it replied to his post.

Powell also had some fun with the mix-up on his Instagram story.

“Damn, I look good,” he captioned The Hollywood Reporter’s screenshot.

Powell also alluded to the fact that he is often mistaken for the former “This Is Us” star, who brought his wife to the Golden Globes, with a snippet of another interview he gave in which he acknowledged fans think he is Hartley.

“Sometimes people come up to me and they go, ‘Are you the guy from "This Is Us"?' and I have to let them down,” he said.

Powell can currently be seen in the romantic comedy “Anyone But You,” while Hartley is gearing up for the premiere of his new series, “Tracker,” scheduled to premiere on CBS after the Super Bowl on Feb. 11.
