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’ Cast, Julianne Moore, Allison Janney & More Ask NBC To Move President Trump’s Town Hall Opposite Joe Biden’s To A Different Time Slot

After the announcement that President Donald Trump will hold a town hall on NBC opposite Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden’s on ABC tonight, over 100 writers, actors, directors and producers are calling out NBC for their planned broadcast at 8 p, m, and have signed a letter asking for Trump’s to be shifted to a different time slot .

According to Deadline:  “The list of those who signed the letter include the creator and cast of NBC’s flagship drama This Is UsLaw & Order: SVU star/exec producer Mariska Hargitay as well as Aaron Sorkin, J.J. Abrams, Ryan Murphy, Greg Berlanti, Ava DuVernay, Seth MacFarlane, Damon Lindelof, Kenya Barris, Phil Lloyd & Chris Miller, Adam McKay, Courtney Kemp, Tom McCarthy, Billy Porter, Seth Rogen, Ben Stiller, Allison Janney, Robert Kirkman, Julianne Moore and Amy Schumer.”

Soap fans know of Moore’s start on As the World Turns, Janney’s career started in daytime, and of course, Justin Hartley’s time in the genre, who is a central character on This Is Us as Kevin Pearson. Speaking of This Is Us look for its season premiere on Tuesday, October 27th,

In the letter, those that signed it are not arguing that Trump should not receive equal time on NBC after the network recently aired a Joe Biden town hall from the same Florida location, but are stating. “We are simply asking that NBC air the President’s town hall either before or after Vice President Biden’s so that American voters can have the opportunity to watch both.”

The letter to Comcast, NBCUniversal and NBCU News Groups chairs, Brian Roberts, Jeff Shell and Cesar Conde says in full:  “We are a group of writers, actors, directors and producers. Many of us have been lucky enough to work for NBCUniversal at some point in our careers. Some of us are currently employed at your studio. We have always thought of NBC Universal as both a terrific creative home and a brand that stands for the best in entertainment and broadcast journalism.This is why we have been devastated to learn that you have chosen to air President Trump’s town hall this Thursday night at 8pm, directly opposite Vice President Biden’s town hall.  This is not a partisan issue. This is about the political health of our democracy.

President Trump refused to participate in the virtual debate scheduled for Thursday night by the Presidential Debate Commission. By agreeing to air his town hall as counterprogramming opposite Vice President Biden’s town hall on ABC, you are enabling the President’s bad behavior while undercutting the Presidential Debate Commission and doing a disservice to the American public. We believe this kind of indifference to the norms and rules of our democracy are what have brought our country to this perilous state.  We are simply asking that NBC air the President’s town hall either before or after Vice President Biden’s so that American voters can have the opportunity to watch both.  We understand the necessities of business, especially in this difficult time. But we believe there are larger issues of civic responsibility at stake here.”

‘This Is Us’ Guest Star Ron Cephas Jones & Jasmine Cephas Jones Become First Father-Daughter Winners In Emmy History

On Saturday night, Ron Cephas Jones took home his second Emmy for his guest-star turn on the hit NBC drama, This Is Us.   Jones, plays the biological father, William Hill to Sterling K. Brown’s Randall Pearson.  Jones took home the gold during the final night of the Creative Arts Emmys leading into Sunday’s night’s major ceremony on the 72nd annual Primetime Emmys on ABC. (8 p.m. EST/5 p. m. PST).

But what made last night all the more special for Ron is that with this win, he, along with his daughter actress Jasmine Cephas Jones, became the first father-daughter duo in Academy history to win Emmys.  Jasmine won on Thursday night’s Creative Arts Awards for her work on Quibi’s #FreeRayshawn.   Ron won in the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama series, while Jasmine took home the gold in the Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series category.

In the virtual press room following his win, Ron expressed: “As a parent that’s the most fulfilling that I could ever feel at the moment. Winning another Emmy is the icing on the cake, but to see my daughter progress and move into this place where she’s earned an Emmy is beyond words and I tear up every time I think about it to be honest with you. To see my daughter become healthy and happy, that’s a parent’s dream.  I’ve always focused on the work ever since she was a little girl, and coming from the theater it’s always been about trying to do good work…when you do what you want to do and you’re happy and you’re healthy that’s the win in itself… When we found out she was nominated, I was expressing to her that’s the win in itself when your work gets acknowledged and the win itself is the icing on the cake that keeps you humble and keeps you hungry.”

However, Ron’s win did not go off without hitch!  The broadcast announced The Outsider‘s Jason Bateman as the winner, and then suddenly cut to a commercial.  After the break, a title card acknowledged the mistake and confirmed that the This Is Us star was the actual winner.  In the virtual press room an announcement to all was made that: “They announced the right winner and the right slate, but the voiceover was incorrect.”

So what do you think about Ron Cephas Jones second Emmy win for This Is Us, and his daughter winning an Emmy the same Emmy season? Comment below.
