We all love Milo Ventimiglia in "This Is Us", and apparently so does Jennifer Lopez. The 41-year-old actor is gushing about how Jennifer Lopez herself requested him to be her co-star in their upcoming film "Second Act".
Milo opened up to Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show" about starring in the same film as J Lo in the upcoming romantic comedy.
"I got a phone call that said, ‘Hey, Jen’s doing this movie and she really wants you. And she doesn’t want anybody else. She wants you.’ So I was like, okay!” Ventimiglia recalled
Watch the interview below:
Now before we gush about how good Milo looks, lets chat about how crazy his schedule must be. Filming "This Is Us" here in Hollywood and then flying over to New York to work on his upcoming film.
“I was literally fighting my schedule on the show to find a handful of days that I could fly back to the East Coast, because we filmed in New York," he shared, adding that Lopez made it worth the hassle.
"Once I finally landed on set, she was the coolest, most hard-working, most naturally gifted partner out there. We enjoyed ourselves. It was really fun," said Ventimiglia.
Ventimiglia will be playing Trey, Maya's (Lopez) supportive partner as she nabs a high-paying corporate job.
Still, while Ventimiglia loved working on the movie, it was a littleweird shooting tragic scenes for "This Is Us" one day, and then jetting off to smooch Lopez the next.
"While I was burning down the Pearson house, I was also arm-in-arm with Jennifer," he said.
"Second Act" hits theaters on Nov. 21. Watch the movie trailer below:
