Milo Anthony Ventimiglia (pronounced /ˈmaɪloʊ ˌvɛntɨˈmiːliə/; born July 8, 1977) is an American television actor best known for his role of Peter Petrelli on the TV series Heroes. Ventimiglia was first noticed by fans during his three year stint on the Emmy Award winning WB series Gilmore Girls, playing Rory Gilmore's boyfriend Jess Mariano from 2001 until his final guest appearance in 2006.

After his own short-lived WB series The Bedford Diaries, a recurring role as Meg Pryor's love interest on NBC's critically acclaimed American Dreams, and playing Rocky Balboa's son in the sixth and final installment of the Rocky series, Rocky Balboa, Ventimiglia's big break came in 2006 when he received the part of nurse-turned-superhero Peter Petrelli on NBC's Heroes. He can currently be seen on the big screen in Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor's new film Pathology as Dr. Ted Gray. Filming of the third season of Heroes began May 1, 2008.

Ventimiglia was born in Orange County, California, the son of Carol (née Wilson) and Peter Ventimiglia. His father is Italian of Sicilian descent and his mother has Irish, English, Scottish, French, Cherokee, Indian and Blackfoot ancestry. His last name, Ventimiglia, is the name of a town of Ventimiglia in Liguria, Italy, which later gave its name to another city of Ventimiglia di Sicilia. The youngest of three children, he has two older sisters. He has explained in an interview with USA Today that his "sagging lip" is a result of dead nerve cells, which cause his lower lip to hang limp, predominantly on his right side, much like, incidentally, Sylvester Stallone, with whom he worked in Rocky Balboa.
