SALT LAKE CITY — The men of the NBC show “This Is Us” will grace People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive issue, which will be released on Wednesday.
The three men — Milo Ventimiglia, Sterling K. Brown and Justin Hartley — all graced the pages of the issue, having been named the “sexiest cast alive.”
"I think being sexy is just being comfortable in your skin, and these two cats are very comfortable in their skin," Brown said of his co-stars.
All three have been interested in acting since high school.
“I was all over the place (in high school),” Ventimiglia told People magazine. “I was senior class president but I was also the captain of the wrestling team, but I also did drama and fundraising.” Despite that, “I like to call myself quiet. I’m definitely not shy (but) I didn’t need to be noticed.”
Brown also worked on many projects in high school.
According to People, Brown remembers being “kind of all that,” he said. “I was a three-year varsity letterman in football. I did theater. I was student council president. I didn’t sleep at all.”
Meanwhile, Hartley, who plays the Hollywood actor Kevin on the show, told the magazine that while he "had more confidence than I probably should have in high school," that confidence didn't last. "Then I got out to L.A. and that got squashed immediately,” he said.

The issue will hit newsstands on Wednesday. People hasn’t announced the sexiest man alive yet, but they did publish a list of men of the year, including Zac Efron, 50 Cent and Armie Hammer.
Hollywood actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson won the award last year.
