Milo Ventimiglia couldn’t get a job for a year after ‘Heroes’

Milo Ventimiglia almost quit the acting business when he couldn’t get a job for a year.

“I’ve had moments where I’ve had to pick myself up,” the “This Is Us” star told Access in a new interview. “Probably in my early 30s, I couldn’t get hired in town. I really couldn’t. That was back in the ‘Heroes’ days. I did not work for one calendar year. One entire year, I couldn’t get a job.”

The 41-year-old actor continued, “I was really having to re-evaluate what I was going to be doing because, you know, it’s a profession. You need to feed yourself and clothe yourself and have a roof over your head. I was starting to see those things minimize.”

Ventimiglia, who starred in “Heroes” from 2006-2010, admitted he was close to moving to Italy before landing a role in the movie “Static,” which according to IMDB, was released in 2012.

“I was going to cash in and move to Italy on my European passport and find a farm to work on,” he said, adding he would have buzzed his hair, grown a beard and gotten a motorcycle had he moved abroad.

Sticking through the rough patches worked out for Ventimiglia, who’s been nominated for two Emmys for his role on NBC’s hit show “This Is Us.”
