Deadline reports that Michael Angarano (Will & Grace) will play Jack’s brother Nicky through flashbacks in the upcoming third season of the hit NBC drama This Is Us. The third season will feature flashbacks of Jack’s time in the Vietnam War. Series creator Dan Fogelman previously said the show would be “diving heavy” into the flashbacks during this season. To help with an accurate portrayal, they brought in Vietnam journalist and author Tim O’Brien as a consultant.

Nicky was previously introduced in a flashback as a kid, and the adult version was in a group photo of soldiers from Vietnam, reealing that he was killed in the war. In the season two finale, Kevin (Justin Hartley) and new girlfriend Zoe were going to Vietnam to learn about Jack’s time there.

The series stars Milo Ventimiglia, Justin Hartley, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz, Susan Kelechi Watson and Chris Sullivan.
