This Is Us Fans, We’re Going to Learn How Jack Died in Season 2

May 16, 2017

E!Online speaks with the cast of This is Us at the NBCUniversal Upfronts and we find out we will finally find out how Jack died during Season Two.

It’s the TV death we’ve all been waiting for and dreading.

Some This Is Us fans felt a little disappointed that the NBC hit didn’t reveal how Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) died by the end of the first season. Well, be careful what you wish for, because we’re about to learn how TV’s new favorite dad passed when the show returns for its second season this fall.

“I know we’ll find out how Jack dies and I know we’ll see it,” star Sterling K. Brown revealed to E! News at NBCUniversal’s 2017 Upfront. “Don’t cry yet! I can’t tell you exactly when it will happen…it will happen this season.”

So yeah, start emotionally preparing yourselves now, people.

But Susan Kelechi Watson is hoping fans don’t focus too much on Jack’s death.

“I think it’s so much more important to watch his life,” she explained. “There are jewels in there and so many other connective things we’re going to play with that to watch that play out is going to be something just as great as finding out how he passes.”

As for other season two storylines, Brown said he’s hoping for some flashbacks. “Hopefully, the backstory between Randall and Beth will get exploration!”
While Mandy Moore revealed that This Is Us doesn’t go back into production until July, we were able to get one spoiler about the new season.

When we asked if Randall and Beth are ready for a baby, as he revealed he wanted to look into adoption in the season finale, Watson told us, “I’m not! That’s a spoiler!”

This Is Us will air Thursdays this fall on NBC.

Sterling K. Brown of “This Is Us” Predicts LeBron James Will Be Finals MVP

May 16, 2017

Hopefully you saw Sterling K. Brown in his Emmy-winning role as prosecutor Christopher Darden in The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. Or you’ve watched him steal the show as identity-seeking perfectionist Randall Pearson on NBC’s dramedy This Is Us. This week, however, Complex caught him stopping by the NBA Store in Manhattan to get a custom-made jersey ahead of upfronts for the show, which returns in the fall for Season 2.

Turns out, Brown is a huge basketball fan, and like many of us, rides for LeBron in particular—hence the No. 23 jersey he chose to emblazon with his initials. The very busy, always brilliant Brown took a few minutes to talk playoffs, NBA nostalgia and more.

What do you think? Is it a foregone conclusion that the Finals will be the Cavs and the Warriors?
I mean, the Spurs, if they would have at least gotten a win in Game 1 they would have had a chance, but now with the injury…It’s gonna be Cleveland and Golden State, for sure.

Who gets your vote for MVP?
Regular season? Russell Westbrook; he’s truly deserving. But for the Finals it’s gonna be my man LeBron James, as it should be.

What was the first basketball game you ever went to?
Well, I grew up in St. Louis without a team. I remember going to, I think it was an exhibition game with the Pistons when I was a kid. You know, when you see them on TV with each other, they don’t look that tall. They’re all the same height. But in person…whoa. Those are really tall guys. They’re giants. I can say I stood among giants that day.

And finally, do you know how Jack died?
Oh yeah. Yes, I do.

First Look: This Is Us star Sterling K. Brown on Running Wild With Bear Grylls

April 28, 2017

Entertainment Weekly is giving us the first look of Sterling on Running Wild With Bear Grylls!

We know the Pearson family likes to hike on This Is Us, but how will star Sterling K. Brown do in icy conditions? We will find out when Brown — who, in the past few months, has also joined both Black Panther and The Predator — accompanies Bear Grylls for a special standalone episode of Running Wild With Bear Grylls, in which the two of them head to Colorado.

According to the episode description, they do everything from rappelling a massive frozen waterfall to tracking a deer (before settling for a “less-than-appetizing dinner option,” which should surprise no one who watches the show). Along the way, they’ll discuss Sterling’s Emmy victory, the loss of his father, and his commitment to family.

EW has an exclusive first look at the adventure below.

Brown’s episode will air Monday, May 22 at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.

Milo Ventimiglia Raves About ‘This Is Us’ Co-Stars, Says Sterling K. Brown Is the ‘Sexiest Ever’

April 25, 2017

Milo Ventimiglia is keeping busy!

ET chatted with the 39-year-old actor at the Tribeca Film Festival on Monday, where he was premiering his new thriller, Devil’s Gate, in which he plays Jackson Pritchard, the husband of an FBI agent — clearly, a major departure from his beloved portrayal of Jack Pearson on This Is Us.

“I tell you what, they got the same initials. Jack Pearson has three kids, that’s a lot to manage,” he said, when asked what the biggest difference between the two characters is. “But Jackson Prichard has really got a heavy, heavy weight, a heavy burden on his soul.”

We attempted to get Ventimiglia to give us an update on season two of This Is Us, but unfortunately, he couldn’t say much. “I’m sorry, I got nothing,” he explained. “I’m out in Tribeca, we’re off season right now, we’re not even filming. I have no beard, mustache or goatee, so just sit back patiently and wait. There’s 18 great episodes [from season one]. If you want to re-watch them, go ahead. Otherwise, we’ll be back by fall time.”

That didn’t stop him from gushing over his co-stars, however. The California native had nothing but amazing things to say about seeing Mandy Moore, Chrissy Metz and Susan Kelechi Watson featured in People’s World’s Most Beautiful issue.

“I knew that Mandy, Chrissy and Susan were in the issue, but I didn’t know their involvement,” he said. “So when I saw those stories, I literally on Susan’s, I pulled over and I was listening to her with that letter to her younger self and I was in tears. And then I saw Chrissy had one and [I had the] same reaction.”

“I get the front row seat to how beautiful those women are as human beings, so it’s nice that fans and audiences see a little bit more through the magazine,” he added.

But does Ventimiglia have any plans to start his own campaign for People’s Sexiest Man Alive with his onscreen brothers, Sterling K. Brown and Justin Hartley?

“I tell you what, Sterling K Brown is — he’s sexy. He is sexy, dictionary-like classic,” he joked. “Nah, Sterling K. Brown is the sexiest ever, but then there is Justin Hartley. I don’t know!”

Watch Sterling K. Brown in exclusive deleted scene from Split

April 16, 2017

As deleted scenes reveal, Split lives up to its title. M. Night Shyamalan’s return-to-form hit about a killer (James McAvoy) with two dozen personalities was originally a few films in one. In term of running time, it’s actually the director’s longest film in his career, at three minutes shy of two hours. But Shyamalan’s original director’s cut ran a whopping three hours.

A large chunk of the scenes that were deleted concerned Betty Buckley’s Dr. Fletcher and her next-door neighbor, who’s a handsome neuro-physician named Professor Shaw, who she asks for advice about Dissociative Identity Disorder. Dr. Fletcher was the therapist of the lead antagonist and these scenes were scripted to give more background into his condition. As Shyamalan explains in his introduction to this cutting-room-floor clip (above), the scene took too much attention away from his main character.

But, of course, this scene is even more notable for the actor playing Dr. Fletcher’s neighbor. When Shyamalan cast him, Sterling K. Brown had appeared in a respectable number of small movie, TV, and stage roles — but was next-to-unknown. All that changed in early 2016 when Brown starred as attorney Chris Darden in FX’s magnificent The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. That role earned the actor an Emmy Award (and a standing ovation to go with it), not to mention a regular cast part on NBC’s juggernaut This Is Us and the upcoming movies Marshall, The Predator, and Black Panther.

So check out this scene featuring Brown. It’s likely the last time you’ll see Brown in the scrap pile of any movie. Split comes out on Blu-ray on April 18.
