The day we’ve all been waiting for has arrived, y’all. Milo Ventimiglia was asked a question about Heroes, and he definitely threw in some shade. And it. Was. Glorious.
The This Is Us star sat down with his on-screen wife Mandy Moore and on-screen son Justin Hartley to answer some of the most Googled questions about themselves, and among the usual relationship questions, it turns out a lot of people Google “is Milo Ventimiglia coming back to Heroes.” And he answers with a very definitive, “NOPE.”
Damn, dude, not holding anything back, huh? That smirk on his face when he answers says it all, as do the big laughs from Moore and Hartley. I mean, did you see that grimace on Moore’s face?! They’ve definitely gotten Hero dirt from him. If you had any doubts left about how Ventimiglia feels about his time on Heroes (which started off as one of the greatest TV shows ever before quickly becoming one of the very worst TV shows ever), let this video serve as your answer. It is firmly in his rearview mirror, and that is that.
And he also manages to throw some shade at the people making Google searches! You need to see this to believe it:
Thankfully, when Ventimiglia is asked if Jack will still be on This Is Us, he was quick to assure us all that Season 3 is going to be a big one for Jack. “There’s a lot happening with Jack that we haven’t seen,” he says. “So yeah, I’m still on the show.”
“You’re number one on the call sheet, I don’t think you’re going anywhere,” Moore adds supportively.
But Ventimiglia is quick to counter, “Dude, Ned Stark was too, I’m sure.” If even Ventimiglia is worried about his future on This Is Us, what hope is there for the rest of us?!
