Sylvester Stallone Joins This Is Us As Guest Star

'This Is Us': 5 things to know about Season 2 (Hint: Sylvester Stallone)

Sylvester Stallone is going to visit NBC's hit drama in its upcoming second season, executive producer Dan Fogelman announced Thursday during a panel for the series at the Television Critics Association press tour.

Viewers will also get to a place, eventually, where they will like Miguel (Jon Huertas), Fogelman said. Kate is trying to pursue her singing career, and Kevin is working on his movie and relationship with Sophie.

In a somewhat surprising announcement, Fogelman said that Sylvester Stallone will appear as a guest star in Season 2, playing a "father figure" and costar in the movie Kevin is filming.

Ventimiglia, 40, who worked with Stallone in 2006's Rocky Balboa and played Rocky's son, is close friends with the Escape Plan actor, and helped the NBC series cast him on the show.

This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman has come to terms with the fact that we all care way too much about finding out how and when beloved Pearson patriarch Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) died, and thankfully, we won't have to wait too much longer to get answers. In the scene, which takes place in the present, the now-older Rebecca is telling Randall how she and Jack chose to adopt Randall in the hospital, when he was a newborn baby. She reveals that someone in every marriage has to push for the big decisions in one of the show's now trademark emotional scenes.

State geared up to take on swine-flu
He added that another swine flu patient was also admitted to the hospital's ICU and his condition was also critical. There were no H1N1 patients in Matupi hospital, said a doctor.

The scene then flashes back to the hospital right after the kids were born, with Jack wheeling Rebecca up to the observation window to look at baby Randall. He pushed a stranger on me and that unusual became my child and that child became my life.

Fogelman said season two would lean hard into who the family was before and after Jack's death and what he called that "hinge" moment for the Pearsons. "We've painted a picture of the world's flawless dad, man and husband and now we're going to show the struggle of being that guy and bring him to a fully realized place".

At the end of last season, Kevin scored a big acting job in a film directed by Ron Howard, who had a cameo in the show. "Characters exist in scenes happening at earlier times".

We'd say that Fogelman has an impossibly high mountain to climb with this one, but he's managed to write himself out of much worse.

"This Is Us" returns for Season 2 at 9 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 26 on NBC.
