Milo is best known for playing the role of Peter Petrelli on NBC's doomed superhero show "Heroes". Throughout all of the ridiculousness of the four season run, Milo remained the one thing I actually liked about the show. Through the success of "Heroes" Milo developed his own production company, and is currently working on a number of projects.
His production company received a script, which they in turn, collaborated with the writer, and turned into a comic book called "Rest". The comic was picked up by Devil's Due Publishing in 2008. Milo's foray into the comic book world has made him as staple at most major (and some surprisingly minor) Comic Cons.
This guy seems to have it all going on right now. Besides his love of acting, he is also producing, writing, and directing a number of nerdy projects. "Ultraome" is his current project, which is a web-series that which will debate the comparative merits of science fiction characters. In the first episode Milo discusses the Lord of the Rings superiority over Star Wars.
Milo is also a contributor to a number of charities and organizations such as the USO, the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and Heroes Against Autism.
His "go getter" attitude, paired with his love of comic cons, and his sexy smile are all reasons I've chosen Milo Ventimiglia as Hot Nerd of the Week!
