Milo Ventimiglia to attend Gilmore Girls reunion at ATX Festival
UPDATE: Jared Padalecki is confirmed as well!
EARLIER: Another resident of Stars Hollow is checking in to the ATX Festival‘s Gilmore Girls reunion.
Milo Ventimiglia, who played Luke’s nephew—and Rory’s troubled boyfriend—Jess Mariano on the WB drama, will be joining the show’s reunion panel, EW has confirmed. The panel, which will serve as the television festival’s closing night event, already includes writer/ EPs Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino, as well as cast members Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Kelly Bishop, Scott Patterson, Liza Weil, Keiko Agena, Danny Strong, Matt Czuchry, Jackson Douglas, Todd Lowe, Liz Torres, Yanic Truesdale and John Cabrera. EW Morning Live host Jessica Shaw is moderating.
Ventimiglia, who most recently appeared in a three-episode arc on Gotham, told People earlier this year that he doesn’t think Jess and Rory ever got back together: “I think they kept a friendly relationship. Maybe they send each other postcards.”
