On the verge of exiting the movie industry, he landed a role in the 2012 horror film, Static.
As of March 2019, he plays a starring role on the comedy drama TV series, This Is Us, which debuted on NBC in September 2016.

Relationship – Married, Wife, Dating, Girlfriend
The Gilmore Girls star is single and has never been married. He has, however, been involved in two high-profile romantic relationships with his co-stars, Alexis Bledel, and Hayden Panettiere. The actor dated the former from 2002 to 2006 and at the time, he was portraying her love interest in the TV series Gilmore Girls.
After they broke up, he moved on to Hayden who is 12 years younger than him and only 18 at the time they started dating. Sadly, their relationship which was at the center of media attention, lasted only two years, from December 2007 to February 2009. Following their break-up, Milo in an interview with Mr. Porter, said he learned from the experience never to date a co-star again.
Although Milo Ventimiglia is famous for keeping his love life away from the media, there have been reports that he has probably found love again, this time, outside Hollywood. The report had it that he had something going with Kelly Egarian, a marketing coordinator for fashion designer, Stella McCartney, with who he was first linked in 2016 after they were seen together in December of that year.
The duo made their first public appearance at the 2017 Emmy Awards in Los Angeles and even though they did not walk the red carpet as a couple, they sat together at the event and even attended the after dinner together. This outing may likely be the only way Milo would confirm their relationship.
Height And Other Body Measurements
The This Is Us star stands at 5 feet 9 inches (175 cm) and weighs 172 lb (78 kg). He has dark brown hair color, light brown eyes and a body measurement of chest – 44 inches, waist- 33 inches, and biceps- 15 inches.
Though incredibly handsome, Milo has a crooked mouth which makes the left side of his lower lip to go up when he talks or smiles. This is because he was born with dead nerves on that part of his lip. According to him, he was criticized for it in the beginning of his acting career.
