Milo Ventimiglia Talks Jack’s Death on This Is Us: ‘When the Answers Come, You’ll Be Satisfied’

This Is Us audiences don’t have all the answers — but when they do, Milo Ventimiglia believes they’ll be “satisfied.”

Since the heartbreaking season one finale aired in March, fans have been theorizing about the way in which Ventimiglia’s beloved character, Jack Pearson, passed away.

“The number one comment I get is, ‘tell me how you died,’ which stung a little bit when I would first get that question,” Ventimiglia, 39, told PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly Editorial Director Jess Cagle for the latest episode of The Jess Cagle Interview.

The day after the finale was televised, Ventimiglia recalled a viewer asking about father of three Jack’s on-screen death, which shook the actor emotionally.

“I remember the first time it happened was the day after the finale and I was taking a meeting and I was walking across the studio lot and a guy said to me, ‘Hey man, great show. … I was a little bummed, though. Last night, we couldn’t see how you died,’ ” Ventimiglia remembered the man telling him.

At that moment, Ventimiglia “stopped and I walked over and I put my hand out and I said, ‘I’m Milo.’ He said, ‘Hey, I’m Jim.’ I said, ‘Jim, I want you to think about what you just said. You’re upset you didn’t see a man die. I’m that man. Think about that.’ ”

While Ventimiglia understands that loyal fans want the mystery behind Jack’s death to be revealed sooner than later, he vows waiting for the answer to the burning question will be worth it.

“I get that it’s fresh because TV audiences are savvy. Especially in the world that we live in today — with social media and digital and internet — everybody wants all the information. They want it now,” he explained

“I feel like this show is getting back to that appointment television where you’re going to clock in once a week, you’re going to pay attention, and then guess what? You’re going to wait one more week, just seven days. So that information, that want to, that desire to say, ‘I want to know how Jack died,’ well, you’re just going to have to wait and be patient,” he said, and added, “Because when the answers come, you’ll be satisfied.”

This Is Us returns for season 2 this fall on NBC.

Bill Maher, Faulted for Booking Milo Yiannopoulos, Takes Credit for His Fall

Bill Maher Lets ‘Impish Brit’ Milo Yiannopoulos Off Easy

The much-anticipated appearance between Bill Maher and Milo Yiannopoulos on HBO’s “Real Time” came off more like a mutual admiration society. At one point, the host even rather warmly referred to the white nationalist as an “impish, British fag.”

“You are the only good [liberal], literally the only good one,” Yiannopoulos gushed Friday night to Maher.

“I think you’re colossally wrong on a number of things,” said Maher, smiling. Yiannopoulos replied, “And that’s OK.”

Maher did stress that he does have a problem with Yiannopoulos attacking certain people. The standard bearer of the self-described “alt-right” movement, who forged his reputation on Breitbart.com when White House chief strategist Steve Bannon was editor, is known for his vicious diatribes against minorities, immigrants, women, and the LGBTQ community, including a disturbing verbal attack on a trans woman in the audience at a talk at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. An appearance at the University of California at Berkeley this month to plug his upcoming book was cancelled after violent protests broke out. A day after President Donald Trump then threatened to cut off federal funds for the university.

The host did raise Yiannopoulus’ contradictions — that he’s a rabid right-winger while also being gay. “Spoiler alert!” added Maher. Yiannopoulos shot back, smiling playfully with strings of pearls around his neck, “Come on, you can do better than that. What tipped you off?”

He currently has a black lover and once a Muslim lover, he told Maher, as if to counter claims he’s racist or Islamophobic.

“You’ve spoken out against all these people,” Maher noted. “You’ve said you won’t hire gay people.”

“Oh nooo,” Yiannopoulos said. “You can’t trust them to show up to work on time. Too much sex, too much drugs …. always making excuses. Not as bad as women.” That netted him the first boos from the generally giggling audience. “Just kidding,” he said, turning to the audience. “You’re easy … you’re very easily triggered. It’s pathetic,” he added.

Yiannopoulos said he doesn’t know if he is actually a conservative. “All I care about is free speech and free expression,” he insisted. 

But he did complain that most liberalism has gone off the deep end. “Your side has gone insane,” he told Maher. “The Democrats are the party of Lena Dunham. These people are mental, hideous people.” He then attacked comedians Amy Schumer and Sarah Silverman. “These people used to be funny before they contracted feminism,” Yiannopoulos said.

He also groused about the “authoritarian” “policing of humor for racism and sexism,” which he called “utterly wrongheaded.” Such humor is “how we build bridges, not how we break them,” 

“The reason [liberals] want to police humor is they can’t control it — because the one thing all authoritarians hate is the sound of laughter,” he added.

Yiannopoulos skewered “Ghostbusters” andSaturday Night Live” star Leslie Jones, whom he not only viciously attacked on Twitter but also “rallied and directed” hundreds of other users to attack using racist language after the film was released. The microblogging site subsequently banned him for hate speech.

“I simply don’t accept that the star of a Hollywood blockbuster is sitting in a Hollywood mansion crying over mean words on the internet. Get over it,” he snapped. “Mean words on the internet don’t hurt anyone.”

As for himself, the self-proclamied “virtuous troll” said he loves to be attacked. “I get off on it,” he said. “I’m a little broken.”

Maher said that some would say his words incite violence. Yiannopoulos retorted, “Then they would be idiots.” He also attacked journalist Jeremy Scahill for refusing to come on Maher’s show when he found out the alt-right mouth would also be there. “That silly man who had a hissy fit … if you don’t show up to debate, you lose,” Yiannopoulos said.

Scahill issued a statement when he backed out of the program that Yiannopoulos “has ample venues to spew his hateful diatribes.” “There is no value in debating him,” Scahill said. “Appearing on ‘Real Time’ will provide Yiannopoulos with a large, important platform to openly advocate his racist, anti-immigrant campaign.”

Maher only threw a couple of Yiannopoulos’ controversial attacks back in his face including his positions that “black lives matter is a hate group” and “there’s no such thing as white privilege.” But it seemed a lackluster effort and Yiannopoulos let it pass.

The comedian instead scolded liberals. “Stop taking the bait, liberals,” he said, before delivering the “impish British” quip. He then read some cutting jokes from the late Joan Rivers to show, apparently, that Yiannopoulos isn’t all that bad.

But Maher did urge Milo to “get off the Trump train” because he’s not appropriate for someone purported to be free-speech advocate. But Yiannopoulos responded, “He’s fabulous!”

Larry Wilmore To Milo Yiannopoulus: ‘Go F**k Yourself’

Bill Maher might have been willing to give ultra-right wing agitator Milo Yiannopoulus a free pass on “Real Time,” Friday night, but that certainly wasn’t happening on the post-program revisit “Overtime.”

Comedian Larry Wilmore told Yiannopoulus to “go fuck yourself” twice, once after the white nationalists’ favorite claimed that transgender people suffer from “a psychiatric disorder” and shouldn’t be “around little girls.” Yiannopoulus said they are “vastly disproportionately involved with sex crimes.” “I make no apologies for protecting women and children,” he added. Maher, astonishingly agreed, saying, “that’s not unreasonable.” The host asked panelist and former Republican congressman from Georgia Jack Kingston, “where do you stand on weirdos peeing?”

After Wilmore and “Overtime” panelist counter-terrorism expert Malcolm Nance attacked Yiannopoulus, Maher asked him why he always had to fight with people. “We were having such a nice time, but you always invite such awful people on your show, they’re so stupid,” he whined to Maher. “You need to start inviting higher-IQ guests.”

Wilmore responded that Nance could “talk circles around your pathetic, douchey little ass.”

The men mostly smiled or chuckled through the parries and Kingston urged Yiannopoulus on, saying, “Milo, for it, Brother.”

“Are you the real, true face of the alt-right?” Nance asked at one point. “I thought the Nazis were in there, how did they take you on board?”

Yiannopolous responded that they hate him. “The worst people on the very far left and the very far right all hate me,” he added.

Wilmore quipped, “I think you’re leaving out a lot of people.”

Maher advised Yiannopoulus to tone down his rhetoric — not just for the show but in general. “Look, this is the beginning of your career,” he said. “People are just starting to hate you. You remind me of a young, gay, alive Christopher Hitchens, but you gotta lose that kind of shit.”

Twitter, meanwhile, wasn’t particularly happy about Maher’s gentle treatment of his guest earlier on “Real Time,” when the two seemed to get on famously and Maher never held Yiannopoulus’ feet to the fire. Others were simply outraged he was invited to begin with.

Leslie Jones Shreds Publisher For Big-Money Deal With Right-Wing Troll Milo Yiannopoulos

”Saturday Night Live” star Leslie Jones says publisher Simon & Schuster is helping to spread hate with its reported $ 250,000 book deal with Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos.

Yiannopoulos was booted from Twitter last year for abusive comments directed at Jones, which also led to a wave of nasty trolling aimed at the “Ghostbusters” star.

Jones briefly left Twitter as a result.

Simon & Schuster said in a statement that, despite the deal with Yiannopoulos, it does not condone hate speech “in any form.”

Jones isn’t buying it.

She fired back: 

She later added, perhaps in reply to some of the trolling comments directed he way:

Jones also got some support from horror master Stephen King, who tweeted a link to a story about her blasting the publisher. She excitedly tweeted back: 

That also led to a long discussion of favorite King books and films by Jones’ followers and the actress herself. She ain’t afraid of no ghosts … but vampires are another story:

Milo Ventimiglia Watches ‘Gilmore Girls’ In Web Series, Declares ‘Rory Sucks’

File this under weird, meta and something we probably could have done without.

In a clip from the CW Seed web series “The P.E.T. Squad Files,” Milo Ventimiglia’s character Cash watches Rory tell Jess that she really doesn’t want to be with him on “Gilmore Girls.” Ventimiglia, of course played Jess on the CW series, which aired from 2000 to 2007.

“You guys watching Gilly Girls? I fucking love that show! Hey, Cash, that guy kind of looks like you,” his friend says in the clip, adding, “I took one of those personality tests, I’m like a classic Rory.”

“Rory sucks, bro,” Ventimiglia replies, which might be funnier if he and Alexis Bledel didn’t date in real life for three and a half years, or apparently have a tumultuous relationship of their own.
