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.”

THIS IS US Delivers Stunning Episode As The Big Three Meet Their Uncle Nick

If you caught Tuesday night’s episode of This Is Us, you saw television drama at its best, and one of the best installments of this heart-tugging series, doing what it does best – intertwining past and present day storytelling, and revealing a shocking truth that will have a ripple effect for the Big Three and Rebecca.

The episode was a beautifully scripted hour of TV called, “Songbird Road Part 1”.  The title refers to the address of where the very much alive Nick (brother of Jack) is living 166 miles outside of Pittsburgh.

In the past, we see Jack receiving postcards from his brother under the alias “Clark Kent” or “C. K.” and reaching out to him over an extended period of time, trying to reconnect.  Jack hides all of the postcards.  When one of them shows up at his home mailbox, and it reads “Last one”, Jack decides to take a Saturday trip to see his brother, and lies to Rebecca as to where he is headed.

In the present day, the Big Three set out on a road trip to find their Uncle Nick, now that Kevin’s journey to Vietnam and back has revealed that Jack lied to everyone – telling them that his younger brother died, when he is actually alive.  Seeking the truth and to locate him, Randall, Kevin and at first a reluctant Kate, set out to the address on the postcard Kevin has.  Rebecca does not want to go, obviously, struggling with the fact that Jack never let on during their marriage that his brother was alive.
