Watch: Milo Ventimiglia Gasp After Reading Fan Thirst Tweets

The latest celebrity thirst tweets video is out, and it’s including our favorite Pearson and Gilmore Guy.

Ever since he appeared in our screens as the punky Jesse Mariano in Gilmore Girls, we have loved and adored Milo Ventimiglia. Then his take as Peter Petrelli in Heroes turned him into the cool heroic lead we always knew he could be. But it was his role as Jack Pearson in This Is Us that turned Ventimiglia into the daddy we all want to have.

With all of those dreamboat roles, this actor has captured many hearts, collected many fans, and received thousands of thirst tweets. And now, we get to read a few of them (with the actor present!).

Buzzfeed has released another video of their celebrity thirst tweets and this time Milo Ventimiglia is there to read the salacious texts. Ventimiglia is burning his eyes in order to promote his new film Second Act with Jennifer Lopez, and we’re thankful that the film has given us an excuse for this following video.

The Writers of "The Golden Girls" And "Gilmore Girls" Are Writing A Show About Gay Senior Citizens

Two men who worked on shows like “The Golden Girls” and “Gilmore Girls” are turning their attention to elderly LGBTQ people.

Variety has shared more info concerning tv writers and producers Stan Zimmerman and James Berg and their upcoming project about gay senior citizens.

Apparently, the series, titled “Silver Foxes,” is a work in progress and is currently set up to be a half-hour, single-camera series.

The series will follow:

“Two older gay men and one twink (their buddy’s young lover) that rescue a friend who’s been forced-back-in-the-closet at his homophobic assisted living facility. After they bring him back to their mid-century Palm Springs house, the foursome creates a fabulous family of friends.”

While no names are officially attached to the show yet, the two writers hosted a table read of the pilot last year at Zimmerman’s home. Actors George Takei, Leslie Jordan, Bruce Vilanch, Todd Sherry, Melissa Peterman, Daniele Gaither, and Cheri Oteri all acted for the reading.

As we stated before, the two writers were inspired by the documentary “Before You Know It,” which focuses on the struggles of LGBTQ elderly. From that film, Zimmerman learned that retirement homes and assisted living facilities often push LGBTQ elders back into the closet (like with the one woman from Illinois who’s suing her assisted living home after she was slapped because of her sexual orientation).

Again, the series is a work in progress, but production company Super Deluxe, which is owned by Turner Broadcasting, will develop the series for a cable network or a streaming platform.
