Milo Ventimiglia: Jack Pearson

Before becoming TV's most beloved dad (and the man who unintentionally launched a war against Crock-Pot), Milo played the too-cool recurring character Jess on Gilmore Girls. After that stint, IMDB notes the actor appeared on several other TV shows, including American Dreams, The Bedford Diaries, and Heroes. He also has dabbled in several movie projects, like That's My Boy, Grown Ups 2, and The Divide. So far, Milo's portrayal of Jack Pearson has landed him two Emmy Award nominations and one People's Choice Awards nomination.
