Milo Ventimiglia & Mandy Moore Cast in Dan Fogelman’s Birthday Pilot at NBC

Dan Fogelman’s NBC birthday dramedy has cast five of its eight leads, Variety has confirmed. The potential series will follow a unique group of characters all born on the same day.

The pilot’s ensemble includes Milo VentimigliaMandy MooreJustin Hartley, Sterling Brown and Ron Cephas Jones.

The “Heroes” and “Gilmore Girls” alum will play Jack, who’s described as easy-going and happily married to Rebecca, played by Moore. The couple just moved into their new home in Pittsburg and is on the verge of welcoming triplets.

Hartley, best known from his heavily recurring arc on “Revenge,” has been cast in the pilot as Kevin, a handsome and successful television actor with an underlining boredom in his ultimate bachelor life.

Brown (“Army Wives”) will play Randall, a sharply dressed corporate businessman and family man, based in New York, who’s raising his two young daughters with his wife Beth (yet to be cast). Jones (“Mr. Robot”) will play Randall’s (Brown) biological father who abandoned him at a fire station soon after he was born.

Should the untitled project go to series, all five actors would appear as series regulars in the hour-long ensembler. Three regulars still remain to be cast.

Fogelman, who created “The Neighbors” and “Galavant,” will is writer and exec producer, along with Jess Rosenthal, Charlie Gogolak, plus John Requa and Glenn Ficarra who will direct the pilot. 20th Century Fox is the studio.

The pilot is slated to shoot before the end of the year.
