'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.

'This Is Us' Cast Reveals Possible Season Two Story Arcs

We may be a while away from the second season of This Is Us, but perhaps this new scoop can hold us over for a bit.

The cast stepped out at a panel for The Paley Center For Media’s 2017 PaleyFest Los Angeles held at the Dolby Theatre on Saturday (March 18) in Hollywood.

Stars Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Susan Kelechi Watson, Chris Sullivan, and Ron Cephas Jones opened up about the finale and some possible season two story arcs.

Sterling, in particular, talked about Randall’s sudden desire to adopt a child, saying (via Deadline), “It’s clearly the beginning of a conversation between a husband and wife. It’s something that’s on his heart, when he reflects on the loss of William… and the gift he had being raised as a Pearson. He wants to bring it full-circle.”

'This Is Us' Star Ron Cephas Jones Will Be Back in Season Two

SPOILER ALERT! DO NOT CONTINUE IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED!

If you’re like the rest of us, you’re still reeling from the emotional death of William (Ron Cephas Jones) on last night’s This Is Us.

Luckily, this is probably not the last we’ll see of the character – as the show often uses flashbacks to tell the story.

That was the first question Ron had when he read the script.

“‘Is there a way for him to still be in the story, in season 2, after we found that out?’” Ron told EW. “As an actor, that was the first thing that I was thinking and hoping and praying for, which ended up being the case. Then it was the matter of, again, not knowing how or when or what, but I do know that he’s going to carry over into season 2 in some way, just as well as Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) was in all of season 1. The whole story was there; it’s just the way they’re doing their writing. It’s so beautiful and interesting, and it leaves it open for so many possibilities.”

“I haven’t had any conversations with Dan [Fogelman executive producer] at this point about what would transpire next season,” Ron continued. “But at this point, I’m just totally satisfied at the moment with knowing that the character’s going to be back for season 2, so I still don’t know what capacity, how many episodes, things like that, so we just have to wait a little longer before I can even get close to answering that question.”

He added, “I have all the scenarios that all the fans have, or you might imagine. It could go so many different ways. There’s a chunk of his life that we haven’t explored. There’s those moments where Randall has dreams. There are moments where they just do raw flashbacks to build story. They’ve been so creative over there, the writers and Dan have been so ingenious, there’s no telling what he’s been cooking up in the lab this time around, you know? [Laughs.] But I imagine and I’m sure it’s going to be more of that and even better, so I’m excited about it. Very excited about it.”

TELL JJ: Do you want to see William return in future episodes?
