The only news that gets us more excited than news of a new rom-com is finding out a new rom-com will star Jennifer Lopez and Milo Ventimiglia!
The world could definitely use more rom-coms. We have our usual standbys, but sometimes a little variety in our vicarious love lives wouldn’t go amiss, y’know? And since we still re-watch Maid in Manhattan and The Wedding Planner maaaaybe a little more often than is socially acceptable, we literally couldn’t be happier that J. Lo is coming back to rom coms, as previously announced.
Just kidding, we COULD be happier — and that’s if Milo Ventimiglia were going to play the male lead in a rom-com.
LUCKILY THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT’S HAPPENING, AS WE JUST FOUND OUT. Act like you haven’t been envisioning Milo Ventimiglia as the rom-com lead in your life since Gilmore Girls. Yeah, we see you.
The movie is called Second Act and in it, Jennifer Lopez will star as a woman looking to ~reinvent~ herself, with Milo Ventimiglia as her long-time boyfriend.
The project also features Vanessa Hudgens and Leah Remini, so we’re super into all of this. The only thing that gives us any pause is that long-term boyfriends in rom-coms don’t tend to last, but…we’re definitely rooting for Milo and J. Lo to find their happily ever after.
