Milo Ventimiglia is revising his role of Jess Mariano in the Gilmore Girls revival, Gilmore Girls: Seasons, and began filming his first episodes last week. In an interview at Wizard World Comic Con, Milo reveals some spoilers about his character. You can see the full transcript of his interview below the video, revealing some BIG clues about what Jess may be up to.
“I had my first day of filming on Tuesday this week, back at Warner Brothers, which is a lot of fun. Kind of the studio that raised me. And Jess is just up to Jess sh*t. He’s Jess. He’s a little salty and ornery and kind of doing his own thing and has zero tolerance for anything. Or anyone.
But he’s also there to, kind of, push the ball forward for some folks in Stars Hollow, which is something that Jess has always done, whether intentionally, maliciously or positively; he’s always sent people in a direction.”
We discussed last week what it could mean that Milo has confirmed he’ll be in 3 episodes, starting with the first episode, which has huge implications for #TeamJess. Possibly complicating that, now, is Milo’s own statement above that he will be “pushing a ball forward,” which seems to imply he’s pushing others (Rory?), not necessarily involving himself in the process. It has been true in the past that he has been the one to get Rory to be her own person and find her own path in life, but what this means for #TeamJess… ?
