Ac­tor Milo Ven­timiglia gained in­ter­na­tional recog­ni­tion for his roles — Jess Mar­i­ano for the tele­vi­sion com­edy series Gil­more Girls and Peter Pe­trelli for the drama series He­roes. The 40-year-old ac­tor cur­rently stars as Jack Pear­son in the drama series This Is Us and has re­ceived a nom­i­na­tion for the Prime­time Emmy Award for Out­stand­ing Lead Ac­tor in a Drama Series. Milo speaks about his role, the pop­u­lar show and more. Ex­cerpts from the in­ter­view: I think, the fact that he was a good guy got me in­ter­ested. I think in the cur­rent tele­vi­sion land­scape, we have shown more of war, crime and scan­dal. I like the fact that there is some good­ness in this man and in this show. I think there’s prob­a­bly a lit­tle bit of me in him and a lit­tle bit of him in me. I try to be a good guy. I try to be kind and hon­est. But I’m also a hu­man be­ing. I don’t have any kids; I’m not mar­ried. But, if I was, I think, I would hope­fully be as en­am­oured with my wife and kids as Jack is. I get quite a few peo­ple recog­nis­ing me from the He­roes days and Gil­more Girls. It varies. For most of the part, ev­ery­body walks up to me smil­ing and that al­ways feels good. I don’t feel that at all. I’m very con­fi­dent in what we are do­ing. I think there’s an an­tic­i­pa­tion, which is ex­cit­ing but I don’t feel the weight to per­form. I feel, we just get to show up, do our jobs, en­joy our­selves and hand it over to the au­di­ences. It’s funny when you walk into I don’t wanna say that there has been a lot of down­time. It’s one of those sets where you just hang around. It’s a great crew. Amaz­ing. She’s in­cred­i­ble, kind, funny and smart. The kind of part­ner you want in a jour­ney like this, on a show like this.
