'This Is Us' Star Milo Ventimiglia to Play Evel Knievel in Series

 

InĀ Evel, Ventimiglia -- an avid motorcycle rider -- will take on the 1970s icon as he prepares for his greatest death-defying feat, the historic Snake River Canyon jump. The project promises to be an "exhilarating portrait of a complex man living the American dream, juggling meteoric celebrity and raising a family -- and facing the real probability that his next jump will kill him." I'm ALL in!

Here is the legendary Evel, who loomed so large over my childhood, doing his first jump on ABC's "Wide World of Sports."
