'This Is Us' Creator Opens Up About Kate's Weight Loss Journey

The cast of NBC’s This Is Us is on the cover of the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter, out on newsstands now.

Here’s what the show’s creator Dan Fogelman had to say:

On why This Is Us works for Trump’s America: “In a time when you cringe every time you open your internet browser or get a news alert on your phone, it’s refreshing for people to turn on a show where the message is inherently positive. The characters may be flawed, and sometimes deeply flawed, but they are inherently good.”

On long-term plans for Kate’s weight loss journey: “Thus far, the plan we had for the character and what Chrissy’s been doing have been working in tandem, with a talk once a year of, like, ‘Hey, here’s what we’re thinking.’ So we have a general long-term plan that we’ve all talked about, and we will adjust the plan as needed. I mean, that’s life, right?”

On his “doughier” original plans for Jack before casting Milo Ventimiglia – and that butt scene, which was meant to be funny: “I didn’t imagine that that was going to be a thing that would blow up the internet. I joke about it a lot, but really, my initial conception of that character was that different.”

'This Is Us': Sylvester Stallone Will Guest Star in Season 2

The cast of This Is Us teamed up for the 2017 Summer TCA Press Tour!

Milo Ventimiglia, Chris Sullivan, Mandy Moore, and Susan Kelechi Watson spoke on stage during the NBCUniversal portion of the event on Thursday (August 3) at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.

They were joined by their co-stars Ron Cephas Jones, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, and creator Dan Fogelman.

The group dropped lots of season 2 teasers, including the revelation that Sylvester Stallone will appear in a plot line about Kevin’s big movie! The movie will feature Kevin as a young soldier and will be directed by Ron Howard in the show, according to Deadline.

Dan said that Milo helped enlist Sylvester, as he starred with him in 2006’s Rocky Balboa. “We needed a big star for his [Kevin’s] movie,” Dan revealed, “and we’re really excited about the [episode] script.”

When asked about Jack’s death, Dan explained, “If I say everything, there is nothing to watch. If this is the question that is haunting people, in the course of the second season, you’ll get the answers and more. The first episode has a first giant piece of the puzzle that will set the Internet abuzz. That’s the best I can say without spoiling.”

FYI: Mandy is wearing Roksanda with Malone Souliers heels.
