His character on the Batman prequel series will be quite different from anything you've seen the 37-year-old actor do before: Ventimiglia will be playing Jason Lennon, aka The Ogre, who tests women to find his perfect mate... While The Ogre may not have found true love just yet, the same doesn't necessarily apply to his portrayer in real life. (I'm totally just asking for a friend, you guys.) If celebrity relationship site Famous Fix is to be believed, the Heroes star is "currently single." The highlight of the site is obviously its "Six Degrees Of Dating Function," wherein you can input two celebrities' names and find out how closely linked they are by romantic partners.
Alas, Ventimiglia has more than the average Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, being eight steps removed from the Footloose star — although those eight people include Bradley Cooper, Denise Richards, and Michael J. But the good news is, there are no other reports of Ventimiglia having a significant other.
Coincidentally, Sylvester Stallone has the same condition, and actually played Ventimiglia's onscreen father in 2006's Rocky Balboa.
before our image of him is forever tainted by The Ogre in this Monday's episode of Gotham, "Beasts Of Prey." You know how Ventimiglia always seems to have an adorably lopsided grin plastered on his face? According to USA Today, the actor actually has some dead nerves in his face that cause his lower lip to sag.
"They're both very down to earth, with a sense of responsibility and strong family ties.
And they've been acting since before they can remember, which makes for a very special personality.
It's not just that I thought they would look cute together."But, he said, with a laugh, "Even with all of Alexis's amazing qualities, I think that if she had not been such a good actress, he would not have been interested."The couple got engaged in March 2013 after dating for a few months.
When FOX's Gotham returns from its five-week hiatus this Monday night, it will be with one new very special guest star in tow: Milo Ventimiglia, who you probably recognize from his roles in such hit shows as Gilmore Girls (as Rory's boyfriend Jess) and Heroes (as protagonist Peter Petrelli).
"I was a supporter of that union." Weiner also commented on the couple, adding, "I told Vinnie that they would be great together. '"He also told the show's writers that the two would get married.
"Honestly, they're a really good match," Weiner continued.
His most recent public relationship was with Isabella Brewster in 2010, but she married NBA star Baron Davis in 2014.
So unless he's keeping things very private, Ventimiglia is available.
