Just when we think The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel can鈥檛 get any better, the show鈥檚 creator, Gilmore Girls showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino, teases us with the possibility of an appearance from one of our favorite former Stars Hollow residents: Milo Ventimiglia.

Ventimiglia played Jess Mariano on Gilmore Girls from 2001 to 2006, and again in the 2016 revival, and he and Sherman-Palladino have remained close through the years. Asked whether they might reunite on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Sherman-Palladino told Variety, 鈥淒on鈥檛 think it has not been discussed!鈥

She won鈥檛 bring him on for just any role, though. 鈥淚t鈥檚 got to be the right part,鈥 she said. 鈥淚t can鈥檛 be just a cameo. It鈥檚 got to have some meat to it.鈥

She also noted that his current role as Jack Pearson on This Is Us is an obstacle, especially since Mrs. Maisel takes place in an earlier era. 鈥淚t鈥檚 also got to be a time when he can shave and cut his hair into a 1950s-period look,鈥 she explained. 鈥淏ut the reuniting will definitely happen.鈥

The second season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is expected to premiere on Amazon Prime later this year, and from the looks of the trailer, Midge (Rachel Brosnahan) is going to be broadening her horizons in a variety of ways. She might even dip her toe back into the dating scene. We鈥檒l have to wait to see what comes of her adventures, but if she鈥檚 still single in season 3, we wouldn鈥檛 mind seeing Ventimiglia as a potential love interest.

The This Is Us star, for his part, would happily take any opportunity to work with Sherman-Palladino and her husband, Daniel Palladino. 鈥淚 liked Dan and Amy when I first met them, and I was a fan,鈥 he told Variety. 鈥淣ow I love them, even to the point where I鈥檓 like, 鈥楬ey guys, do you need somebody to sweep the floors on Maisel? I鈥檓 in. You need someone to make sandwiches? I can do that, too.鈥 I just want to hang out with you guys.鈥

Which is not to say he鈥檚 not selective about the roles he takes. 鈥淚 do ask myself, who are you going to be working with? Are you working with a talented dictator?鈥 he explained. 鈥淚f you鈥檙e working with talented writers that are also collaborative but also engage with actors the way Dan [Palladino] and Amy [Sherman-Palladino] engage with actors or the way that [This Is Us creator] Dan Fogelman engages actors, it makes the job more enticing.鈥
