Gotham Sneak Peek: Milo Ventimiglia's 'The Ogre' Comes Clean: 'I Was Going to Kill You'

Originally posted 04/27/2015 10:00AM

The penultimate episode of Gotham's inaugural season has Barbara in more danger than ever before following her date night with the city's most dangerous romantic at heart.

In an exclusive sneak peek at the first two minutes of "The Anvil or the Hammer," Jason (Milo Ventimiglia) invites Barbara (Erin Richards) to stay for breakfast after their night of marathon sex. (Barbara's morning-after hair is particularly enviable, we must say.)

When Barbara declines, insisting that he "talked a good game, but let's not pretend this is more than what it is," the man known to Gotham P.D. as "The Ogre" comes clean about his secret in a last-ditch effort to get her to stay … voluntarily.

Gotham Sneak Peek: Milo Ventimiglia's 'The Ogre' Moves In on Gordon's Girl (VIDEO)

Originally posted 04/20/2015 01:00PM

With Gotham's newest villain aware that he's under investigation by none other than Jim Gordon, Jason Lennon – otherwise known as "The Ogre" – moves in on the person Jim loves most: Barbara.

In an exclusive sneak peek at this week's episode of Gotham, we see that Jason (Milo Ventimiglia) has managed to charm his way into Barbara's (Erin Richards) home.

Despite the fact that Jason is clearly up to no good, Barbara seems bored by her "society" life and intrigued by the danger.

Milo Ventimiglia on His Gotham Arc, Heroes Reborn and, of Course, Gilmore Girls

Originally posted 04/13/2015 05:50PM

Set to play a serial killer for a three-episode arc on Gotham, Milo Ventimiglia's Jason Lennon is a far cry from Peter Petrelli, the empath he portrayed on Heroes.

Nicknamed "The Ogre" – but not the one we know from the DC Comics universe – Jason targets young women in Gotham on a twisted quest for love. When the women he encounters don't meet his expectations, they become discarded in increasingly grisly fashion.

With the Gotham PD too fearful to investigate due to Jason's tendency to target the loved ones of any detectives who start poking around, Jason basically has free rein on Gotham's dating pool … that is, until Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) – with more honor than sense, as ever – steps in.

Now that he's back in the superhero world, Ventimiglia, 37, tells PEOPLE that playing a villain is "fun in a different way" from playing someone like his Heroes character. The actor also reveals whether or not we can expect him to appear in the upcoming Heroes reboot, Heroes Reborn, and what he thinks happened to Rory (Alexis Bledel) and Jess after the series finale of Gilmore Girls.

Milo Ventimiglia Is a 'Huge Indiana Jones Fan'

Originally posted 04/21/2008 09:20AM

Television may have been the theme, but film was the king at the British Academy TV awards at London's Palladium Sunday.

In fact, all Heroes star Milo Ventimiglia wanted to talk about ws the upcoming Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. "I am a huge Indiana Jones fan," Ventimiglia told PEOPLE. "May 22, I will be there."

Alan Dale, the OC's Caleb, who has a small part in the Indiana film, was rather secretive as to what we should expect, adding even more to its mystique.

Hayden Panettiere Awarded For Efforts to Save Dolphins

Originally posted 03/30/2008 05:00PM

Heroes star Hayden Panettiere cried Saturday night as the Humane Society gave her an activism award for protesting the annual dolphin slaughter in Southwestern Japan last year.

Hayden received the Gretchen Wyler Award, given annually at the Genesis Awards to a celebrity who brings attention to animal causes. Wyler, who founded the awards and was also an actress, died last May from breast cancer, two months after presenting the first award to Paul McCartney.

Hayden’s parents and her boyfriend – and Heroes costar – Milo Ventimiglia were in the audience and watched a video of the actress and others paddling out on surfboards and confronting fishermen, who trap and kill dolphins to protect their fish supply. They then gave a standing ovation as Hayden took the stage.
