The most popular TV dad right now is inarguably Jack Pearson, making Milo Ventimiglia‘s face pretty darn recognizable—but you’ll be doing a double take when you see him now.

This Is Us recently wrapped Season 2, and the SAG Award-winning cast was quick to switch up their looks. First, Mandy Moore went blond post-production, and now Ventimiglia has ditched Jack’s famous mustache!

The actor, who also opted for a trim of his dark locks, was seen in an Instagram photo with his hair stylist looking fresh and scruff-free, reminding many a Gilmore Girl fan of his days as a baby-faced Jess Mariano.
