Considering these were adults going after a teenager, many found it disturbing.

Prior to landing “This Is Us,” Ventimiglia had wrapped up a movie titled “Devil’s Gate” and returned to Los Angeles. He had two television projects fall through, so he pushed himself to focus on being home rather than chasing the next acting gig. Then, “This Is Us” popped up and as soon as he read the script, he knew he wanted in on it.
