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.”

Justin Hartley Voices ‘Superman’ In New Animated Feature ‘Injustice’

Here’s yet another role that Justin Hartley was born to play, but this time he’s doing it with a twist! Hartley is playing the man of steel, Superman, in the new animated feature from DC Comic and Warner Brothers titled Injustice.

However, being that it’s animated, fans can hear Justin’s voice as Superman.  This is the third superhero role in Hartley’s career having played Green Arrow on Smallville and then Aquaman for a proposed series from the same team.  Of course, soap fans love him for his roles on Passions (Fox Crane) and The Young and the Restless (Adam Newman), while primetime audiences continue to love his portrayal of Kevin Pearson on This Is Us.

In this new animated featured inspired by the popular video game, things go very wrong for Superman, when The Joker tricks him into murdering Lois Lane!

Justin spoke to TV Insider about taking on the legendary super hero via voice-over and shared what was the appeal for him to do. Hartley expressed: “I loved the arc of the character. I love the way it started and how you get behind him. You go, ‘This is very cool to see him at home and nesting and having a good time.’ And then all hell breaks out and I loved the idea that they wrote this guy flawed and this idea of Superman not having all of the answers… and sometimes, the answers that he has are outrageous. That’s a fun character to play.”

Injustice is out tomorrow on October 19th on 4K, Ultra-HD Blu-ray Combo Pack,Blu-ray, and Digital.  Check out a trailer for it below.

So what do you think of Justin as Superman? Comment below.
