This Is Us fans are used to Jack Pearson bringing them to tears quite often. Whether he’s being extremely romantic with Rebecca, giving a moving speech to one of his kid’s, or running out of a burning house with a dog, Jack Pearson knows how to rouse up some emotion. Well, recently The Today Show decided to allow Milo Ventimiglia, the man behind Jack Pearson, the chance to put some smiles on fans faces.
The morning talk show put unsuspecting fans in front of the camera to talk about Jack on This Is Us and while they were doing so Milo would sneak into the room and find a way to surprise them on camera. Everyone’s reactions ranged from completely ecstatic to totally starstruck. He took the time to talk with fans about Jack and the show and of course, granted everyone some selfies. One fan even went as far as to say that “he’s the hottest guy on the show” to which he replied, “have you seen Justin Hartley?” Do yourself a favor and check out the full video below!

With the series just over a month away, the cast and creators are starting to become a lot more open about what fans can expect in the upcoming third season. For starters, the series just announced that they had cast I’m Dying Up Here star Michael Angarano to Play Jack’s Brother Nicky in a recurring role as they dive much further into Jack’s days in Vietnam.
i am beyond grateful and very excited to be a part of this show – my grandmother even told her dentist. https://t.co/WZaG3hFjVz

In addition to the Vietnam storyline and Kevin’s journey into his father’s past, season 3 has also promised to dive into Toby’s backstory, the early days of Jack and Rebecca, and more about that mysterious “her” scene between old Randall and Tess. The season will also feature a Miguel centric episode.
What would you do if Milo Ventimiglia surprised you while you were raving on and on about Jack Pearson?
This Is Us returns for season 3 on NBC Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 9/8c!
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
