Writer/producer Dan Fogelman is best known for the critically acclaimed NBC series This Is Us, and after last night’s finale we were treated to the teaser trailer for his latest film Life Itself.
Hitting theaters September 21, the story centers on a couple (Oscar Isaac and Olivia Wilde) whose story isn’t restricted to their present day life. Instead, the narrative is a multi generational love story that spans decades and continents (Antonio Banderas, Olivia Cooke, and Annette Bening are seen in the trailer).
If you’ve seen the excellent 2015 Danny Collins, which featured one of Al Pacino’s most charismatic performances (he played a successful yet burned out music star), then you know Fogelman, along with being a first rate TV guy, is also an excellent feature film director. Check out the teaser to Life Itself (which was also the moniker for the excellent Roger Ebert documentary) below!
Milo Ventimiglia has been acting for a long time, having logged his first Hollywood credit nearly 23 years ago. (For you trivia buffs, it was a guest appearance on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.) With so many years and so many great roles under his belt, Ventimiglia says his current role — Jack Pearson on This Is Us — is easily the highlight of his career so far.

The second season finale of This Is Us will certainly be an emotional hour of TV; it airs Tuesday night at 9/8c on NBC.
In its two seasons, This Is Us has become one of the most universally beloved TV shows in ages. The show’s stars have been getting ample evidence of that — Milo Ventimiglia says that he and his castmates are constantly hearing from fans how much the show’s stories mean to them.

New episodes of This Is Us air Tuesday nights at 9/8c on NBC.
Having won an Emmy for his guest-starring role last season, Gerald McRaney returns to This Is Us for Tuesday night’s brand-new episode. He’s always thrilled when producers ask him to come back to the show, and he told us why he thinks the show is so good and so popular with audiences.
After Sunday’s post-Super Bowl episode, This Is Us returns to its regular Tuesday night time slot, at 9/8c on NBC.
Get out the tissues, This Is Us fans. After the Super Bowl on Sunday, it’s the episode we’ve both been waiting for and dreading: the explanation of Jack’s death. While we’ve known since the first season that Jack had passed away, there’s a certain sense of finality that comes with seeing it on the screen, and it’s had some fans wondering whether this means the character — and actor Milo Ventimiglia — are disappearing from the show for good. We spoke to him, and he assured us you won’t be saying goodbye to Jack forever.
This Is Us will air Sunday night following the Super Bowl postgame coverage on NBC.
