Jack and Rebecca Pearson always have The Big Three’s back — on and off set.
“I’m unequivocally the father, [Mandy Moore’s] unequivocally the mother. But we consider we both feel protecting of the group,” Milo Ventimiglia, 40, exclusively tells Us Weekly. “Not just the expel but the whole group. There is a turn of looking out for everyone. we know Susan [Kelechi Watson] has called me ‘Papa Pearson’ or ‘Papa Bear’ before. So if she says it it must be true.”
Ventimiglia and Moore, 33, star in This Is Us alongside Justin Hartley (Kevin), Sterling K. Brown (Randall) and Chrissy Metz (Kate). The expel is intensely close in genuine life, even attending Harley’s new marriage in October.

“[We’re] very supportive,” Ventimiglia says of Hartley, 40, and Brown, 41. “I don’t get a possibility to work with them, hardly if at all. So just seeing the work that they’re doing even the moments that I’m not around it’s inspiring. I’ve told both of them — I’m as much a fan of them as people as we am a fan of their work. They are good men and they are putting in the many pleasing work.”
The NBC play has been collecting nominations and awards given its entrance last year. On Monday, it was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Television Series – Drama as good as nods for Moore, Brown and Metz. Back in September, Brown also won an Emmy in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, in which Ventimiglia was also recognized.
“It’s good to be a support group for them. And that’s everybody on the show — Chrissy and Mandy and Sully [Chris Sullivan] and Susan. Everyone is really, really embracing who these characters are and vital them to the fullest,” Ventimiglia, who recently teamed with Kelley Blue Book, adds to Us. “It’s been one of the best jobs I’ve ever had.”
When not in front of the camera, Ventimiglia is customarily on the road. “Kelley Blue Book has always been something that we consult,” he says. “I consider that’s a good thing generally vital in Los Angeles and being in the cars all the time and just arrange of what people knowledge when they are on 4 wheels. we always grew up around cars, we enjoy cars. It doesn’t meant that I’m always seeking that biggest, fanciest vehicle. It’s a lot of well, what’s going to get you to indicate A to indicate B.” (Kelley Blue Book recently announced the Best Buy Awards, which lists the top 2018 automobile models.)

He also describes himself as a “motorhead,” as he infrequently goes on motorcycle rides with fellow Gilmore Girls alum Scott Patterson. He jokes: “My favorite moment with Scott on the road? He’s not going to like this. Seeing him in my rearview mirrors!”
For more, review the rest of his QA below:
US: What’s been one of your favorite Jack speeches so far?
MV: Gosh, there are so many opposite ones. The pool part with immature Kate articulate about how she’s a princess in my eyes and she doesn’t need a T-shirt. The new debate that we gave to Randall about balancing. It’s a elementary debate but it’s about giving certainty to your kids. There’s a lot some-more coming [with] Jack and Kevin. Being worse than the duck pox, which was always a fun one. we adore the certainty that Jack is giving his kids generally meaningful that he’s not around as adults. And it’s coming up during a time where we know when Jack is actually going to die.
US: What’s been one of the toughest scenes to film?
MV: Jack is very stoic — he doesn’t really let his kids or his wife see the weaker moments he has. So we consider the stage with teenage Kate revelation to her that he has a celebration problem was a formidable stage only since you suppose the hero, worshipper Kate has for her father and for him to tell her he’s not always the resplendent hero. It was unequivocally a tough one.
Gilmore Girls Cast: Then and Now
US: Would it be protected to contend that you and Mandy coach the younger kids on set?
MV: Oh, totally. Oh, of course. They are immature artists. we didn’t get into the business until we was 18 so to know what they must be seeing in their world. It’s not the work it’s the knowledge of the work and what it exposes you to in terms of vigour from the outward world, from the audience, to jobs, from anything. They’re still kids. They still have to do their homework!
US: What’s the biggest recommendation you would give them?
MV: Be yourself and have fun.
US: we adore how the last episodes centered on Number 1, 2 and 3. Will you and Mandy presumably get your own character-centric episode?
MV: I’m certain at a certain point, there may. we kind of feel like the last part of the deteriorate last year, the first season, was a very complicated Jack and Rebecca episode. We’ve got hopefully a lot to play with so I’m certain there will be something like that a little some-more Jack-centric or Rebecca-centric. There is a lot of opposite ways of storytelling on the show.
US: Do people still come up to you about Jack’s death?
MV: All the time! Yeah, every day. Every day. Every day people ask me about Jack’s death. It’s OK, we don’t mind it!
This Is Us front Tuesdays on NBC at 9 p.m. ET. The play earnings on Jan 2.
