Harvard University's Hasty Pudding Theatricals troupe honored actor Milo Ventimiglia as its 2019 Man of the Year.

The This is Us and Heroes star was comically roasted, then took part in a news conference and watched the company's latest production on Friday.

"More than excited to be roasted by the some of the smartest kids in America," Ventimiglia tweeted last month when his name was first announced for the honor.

Woman of the Year Bryce Dallas Howard was similarly feted by the group last week.

Howard, the daughter of actor and filmmaker Ron Howard, is best known for her work in the Jurassic World movies. Her other credits include The Village and Lady in the Water.
