*Warning: Spoilers ahead*

Last night’s episode of This Is Us not only confirmed that Nick Pearson is alive, but it also introduced a brand-new cast member: Griffin Dunne.

The Dallas Buyers Club star, 63, is joining the season three cast of the popular NBC series. Dunne will play an older version of Jack’s brother (the younger version is played by Michael Angarano), which may confuse anyone who missed the midseason finale.   

You see, Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) is always talking about how his brother died in Vietnam. However, last night’s episode concluded with a glimpse of grown-up Nick (Dunne), who is living in Bradford, Pennsylvania (about a two-hour drive from where the Pearsons live). So yeah, thanks a lot, Jack.  

Will Kevin (Justin Hartley) uncover his dad’s secret? Sounds like a Dunne deal if you ask us. (Sorry, had to.)
