When NBC’s This Is Us journeys to Vietnam in its upcoming season three, the drama will look back at Jack’s (Milo Ventimiglia) time during the war.

There, we will also meet his brother, Nicky to be played by Michael Angarano (I’m Dying Up Here and Will and Grace) ). Angarano is set to recur throughout the season, according to EW.com

In story, Nicky was killed under circumstances that are not known to viewers as of yet.

Viewers first saw Jack as young boy in the season 2 episode of “Brothers” and later when Jack looked a photo of himself with Nicky in Vietnam.

This Is Us will tell this back-story, as well as the present day story of Kevin Pearson (Justin Hartley), and his new girlfriend Zoe, in Vietnam to find out more about his father’s wartime history.

So what do you think about Angarano as Ventimigilia’s on-screen brother? Comment below.

Michael Angarano is a wonderful, likeable actor who’ll be a great addition to an already brilliant cast. I still remember his terrific work as a very young actor in the classic film ALMOST FAMOUS. This show is on fire right now and I hope the high quality continues.

A good reason to take a look and learn more about this series. He also was memorable in the short-lived “Summerland.”
