Milo Ventimiglia spoke to Elle, saying when the Palladinos called him regarding the Gilmore Girls revival, he told them:
‘I’ll totally be there.’ But it’s strange to play a character that I’ve played 13 or 14 years ago. He’s kind of the same where we left him. We pick right back up in the same spot.
Regarding which “Team” he’s on:
I was at a Comic Con one time and somebody asked me what team I was and I said ‘you know, put that to the side… did people ever consider that if Jess is Team Rory?’ Maybe not, she broke his heart twice. I think he’s on her side because he cares about her but everybody is dying for them to be together and it’s like it didn’t work. Why force anything? I don’t know, I just think people need to wait until November 25th, put away their expectations and hopefully just enjoy what we shot and what came out.
When asked what he wished to happen for Jess in the revival, he said he had no expectations and thought it would just be fun:
Speak some words, see some great friends of mine. I’m just going to enjoy it. I think there are a lot of fans that … the second show ended and their minds kept wandering down the ‘what if’ path. My job was over, I stopped. I stopped worrying about where these people were or wondering where these people were. Stories end, the stories end.
