Milo Ventimiglia takes ‘Rest’

'Heroes' star to create comicbook miniseries

“Heroes” regular Milo Ventimiglia has a new role: comicbook star.

Through their Divide Pictures shingle, the thesp and producing partner Russ Cundiff have inked a deal with Devil’s Due Publishing to create “Rest,” a comicbook miniseries to be published in the fall.

The four issues in the series will revolve around the dangers of staying awake as a man is drawn into a conspiracy between a malevolent pharmaceutical company and the U.S. government.

The design of the main character will be inspired by Ventimiglia’s likeness.

Mark Powers, who penned the comicbook “Drafted” and edited “X-Men,” will write the issues based on a story by Mike O’Sullivan.

Devil’s Due and Ventimiglia will unveil the project at New York’s Comic-Con on Friday.

Deal marks the latest move by a company in the comicbook biz to partner with a thesp or high-profile director and build a book around one of their ideas or themselves.

Idea is to adapt the books as a TV show or movie should they prove successful.

Devil’s Due has pics based on its books “Hack/Slash,” “Drafted” and “Lost Squad” in development.
