This Is Us Season 2, Episode 2 live stream.Kevin Pearson (Justin Hartley) quit his job as the star of the hit sitcom, The Manny, to follow his dream to become a serious Broadway actor. Kevin didn’t go quietly, either; he left the TV show on very bad terms. Now, thanks to director Ron Howard, Kevin is back in Los Angeles on a movie set.
This Is Us episode, which you can see below, Kevin tells his visiting girlfriend Sophie (Alexandra Breckenridge) that he returned to The Manny because the network asked him to come back to shoot a special episode of the show.

Kevin Pearson famously quit The Manny and moved to New York after refusing to shoot a scene in which his dumbed-down character pretended to breastfeed a newborn. While Kevin doesn’t want to be known for his role in a superficial sitcom that requires him to be shirtless, This is Us has featured ongoing jokes about his role on The Manny. It looks like Kevin is now back where he started — at least for one very special episode.
