Michael Angarano cast as Jack's brother on 'This Is Us'

Michael Angarano (I'm Dying Up Here) is set to recur on the upcoming third season of the acclaimed NBC drama series, playing Nicky, Jack's (Milo Ventimiglia) brother.

Jack's son is now Jack's brother.

Another Pearson family mystery will unfold in Season 3 of "This Is Us", as the show just cast Jack's brother, Nicky.

This Is Us was also the most anticipated new series heading into fall with its trailer viewed more than 105 million times following the show's announcement at the May upfronts. At the end of season two, we saw Kevin (Justin Hartley) flying to Vietnam with his girlfriend Zoe to learn about his father's experiences. To help with the accurate portrayal of the war, This Is Us in June brought in renowned Vietnam journalist and author Tim O'Brien (The Things They Carried) as consultant.

"It's not what anyone is expecting", he said.

Season 3 of "This Is Us" will explore that time in Jack's life, the showrunners have confirmed, as well as Kevin's visit to the country, which was teased in the finale to the second season. "No one is going to see it coming". I don't know what those writers are eating, but it's brain food.

In its first season, This Is Us originals were averaging a 4.6 rating in adults 18-49 and 14.6 million viewers overall in "live plus seven day" results from Nielsen Media Research, making it the #1 new show of the season in 18-49 and television's #4 entertainment series in that key demographic. "To all of a sudden be immersed in the Vietnam War, we think it's going to be really special and really different".

This Is Us kicks off season 3 on September 25.
