Eric Stonestreet Thanks 'The View' for Hooking Him Up With His Girlfriend (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 18th 2011 3:00PM
Eric Stonestreet plays Cam on 'Modern Family,' and does such a good job in the role that many viewers are convinced he's gay in real life, too. But that's not the case. Stonestreet told 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) the last time he was on that he was "openly straight," and as it turns out, that line helped him meet his current girlfriend.

Stonestreet updated the ladies on his relationship status when he stopped by on Friday. "I didn't know it at the time, but one of the people watching that show that day was my now-girlfriend, and when I met her she was doing a show on Broadway called 'Rock of Ages,'" he explained. "I kinda always felt like I had to dig myself out of a bit of a hole, and tell girls know that I'm actually straight. But she was like, "Oh, I was watching 'The View' and saw that you weren't gay!' And we're still together."

Eric Stonestreet Is a Patient Afraid of The Piggy Man on 'American Horror Story' (VIDEO)

Eric Stonestreet, 'American Horror Story' - 'Piggy, Piggy'This week, we learned that there are horrors that have nothing to do with the supernatural lurking around the corners of 'American Horror Story' (Wed., 10PM ET on FX). While the secret history of Tate was the driving focus of the episode, Eric Stonestreet appeared as one of Ben's patients tortured by his fear of urban legends.

One legend in particular, about "The Piggy Man," is reminiscent of the classic "Bloody Mary" legend. Ben gets him to recite the words into a mirror that would summon The Piggy Man on two separate occasions throughout the episode, and neither of them turn out well.

Brad Paisley, Eric Stonestreet, Carrie Underwood, 'The 45th Annual CMA Awards'Eric Stonestreet came onto the stage at 'The 45th Annual CMA Awards' (Wed., 8PM ET on ABC) with a mission. While these superstars of country music were busy celebrating their industry and receiving awards for their work this past year, they were ignoring the elephant in the room.

"I think you forgot to sing a song about what's weighing on everyone's mind in this room," Stonestreet told hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood. "The divorce of Kim Kardashian and What's-His-Name."

'Modern Family' Wins All the Emmys

Ty Burell, Julie BowenWell, 'Modern Family' is officially the king of the comedy crop at the Emmy Awards. The ABC comedy is four for four at tonight's awards.

Two-time nominee Julie Bowen took home her first Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, beating out costar Sofia Vergara, Emmy host Jane Lynch and golden girl Betty White.

Meanwhile, her on-screen husband Ty Burrell took home his first Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, after losing out to co-star Eric Stonestreet last year. Burrell was competing against costars Stonestreet, Ed O'Neil and Jesse Tyler Ferguson, along with 'Glee' star Chris Colfer, in his category.

Unlike his character, Burrell seemed rather reflective accepting the golden statue, noting that his father passed away before he ever had the chance to see his son perform. "I wonder what he'd think of this," Burrell said, telling the crowd that his father would probably be surprised that his son goes to work in full makeup every day.

'Modern Family' Season 3 First Look: New Cast Photos

Sofia Vergara, Modern Family Season 3Family gatherings can be quite a circus, that's for sure. 'Modern Family' is taking that thought one step further with this new cast image.

The Season 3 cast picture features the gang dressed in classic circus attire -- there's even an animal in the mix! Each person is dressed like a specific circus character.

Last year's photo had the cast hanging out in vintage beach attire.

The new season kicks off with a 1-hour premiere that sees the Dunphy and Pritchett families heading to Jackson Hole, Wyoming for a dude ranch adventure. ABC promises big firsts, surprises and a face-off!

Check out a full gallery of ABC's new portraits -- including the new Lily, played by Aubrey Anderson-Emmons -- below.

'Modern Family' Cast In And Out of Character on 'Inside the Actors Studio' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 8th 2011 1:51AM
the cast of 'Modern Family' - 'Inside the Actors Studio'James Lipton set aside a special hour-long broadcast of 'Inside the Actors Studio' (Tue., 8PM ET on Bravo) for the adult castmembers from 'Modern Family.' To keep things interesting -- and a little confusing if you were trying to watch this while multitasking -- Lipton decided to interview both the actors and the characters they play on television.

As a result, he got some different answers to his favorite questions as when he asked Julie Bowen her favorite curse word. Hers was "dagnabbit," but for Claire Dunphy it's one far more crass.

It was certainly a fun hour, and a neat exploration of how the actors perceive their on-screen characters without the filter of the show's writers giving them their words.

First Look: 'Modern Family' Cast Visits 'Inside the Actor's Studio'

by Jean Bentley, posted Jun 4th 2011 10:00AM
Modern FamilyThe six adult leads on 'Modern Family' flew to New York to tape an episode of James Lipton's 'Inside the Actor's Studio' earlier this month.

The special is scheduled to air June 7 at 8PM on Bravo, but the network posted two clips showing us the hilarity in store for when we tune in next week. For example, the fact that Eric Stonestreet agrees with Jesse Tyler Ferguson's assessment that he's gay for pay, or the non-school-related adventures Julie Bowen had in Florence while studying Italian Renaissance Art during college.

Check out the clips below. (Thanks to PopWrap for the heads up.)

Is 'Happy Endings' More Modern Than 'Modern Family'?

by Laura Prudom, posted May 11th 2011 3:30PM
Fair warning: I'm about to hit you with an unpopular opinion. And though I challenge the assertion that an unpopular opinion even exists on the Internet, overzealous melting pot of ideas and ideologies that it is, this disclaimer is my paltry attempt to avoid a comments section full of vitriol, mud-slinging and CAPS LOCK abuse. Because what I'm about to say certainly flies in the face of critical consensus.

So, Unpopular Opinion Alert: Not only do I think that ABC's midseason comedy, 'Happy Endings,' is funnier than 'Modern Family' (and a great majority of other comedies on air this year, for that matter), I also believe that it is a more accurate, modern representation of Western life than the show with 'Modern' in its title.

It's a 'Threesome Waxing Session' for Cameron Diaz, Eric Stonestreet and Jay Leno (VIDEO)

Cameron Diaz & Eric Stonestreet, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Why must we always take things to the lowest common denominator? Eric Stonestreet, wanting to be a gracious guest on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:30PM on NBC), made a very generous offer to both Jay Leno and fellow guest Cameron Diaz.

When he was working with Diaz on the set of the film 'Bad Teacher,' she had hooked him up with her chiropractor to help with a tweak in his neck. Stonestreet wanted to return the favor.

"I have the best waxer in Hollywood," he joked. "At the end of this interview, the three of us -- if you guys are down -- we're all gonna go have a threesome waxing session."

Jesse Ferguson Talks Eric Stonestreet on 'Lopez Tonight'Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet play a gay couple on 'Modern Family.' In real life, Ferguson is openly gay and Stonestreet is "openly straight," Ferguson said on 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 12AM ET on TBS). "He is the straightest guy you could possibly meet, so it's just a testament to his acting ability."

"Do you ever see him and think, 'Oh, that's too gay'?" asked the host. Well, when Stonestreet auditioned for the role, he did a test scene with Ferguson. "Eric actually did a [zig-zag] Z snap in the audition, and I was like, 'That's too gay.'" At least he still got the role.

The 'Modern Family' Cast Dishes About George Clooney, and Sofia Vergara's Boobs (VIDEO)

The 'Modern Family Cast Dishes About George Clooney, and Sofia Vergara's BoobsIt might be nice to get into bed with George Clooney -- unless you don't swing that way. The topic of hanging out with George in an intimate fashion is discussed on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC) -- and the cast of 'Modern Family' is there to handle it.

During the Emmy Awards, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet of 'Modern Family' got to film a skit with Mr. Clooney, and be in bed with him. Nice! That's the dream of nearly every single heterosexual woman and gay man. And Jesse and Eric play the gay couple on 'Family.' But, as it turns out, only one of them is gay in real life.

First-Timers and Newcomers Were the Big Emmy Winners

Eric Stonestreet of 'Modern Family' after winning a 2010 Emmy for Best Supporting Actor in a ComedyIf I had actually put down bets on my Emmy predictions, I would have lost my shirt, and maybe even my pants. And I still would have been pretty happy about it.

Why? Because when I made those predictions, I did them with the jaundiced eye of a guy who's seen the Academy go with the safe and sane too many times. For instance, in any world that made sense, Jon Cryer wouldn't have been my supporting comedy actor pick over Neil Patrick Harris, Chris Colfer and the 'Modern Family' trio. But the Academy loves repeat winners, so I was resigned to the fact that Cryer was going to win again.

So I was pleasantly surprised when Eric Stonestreet's name was called at the Emmy Awards last night. And I continued to be surprised as the the names of newcomers and first-timers were called for many of the major categories. Yes, new names abounded at the Emmys, and hopefully, it's a harbinger of what we might see in the years to come.

Emmy Picks: Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy

The nominees for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy for the 2010 Emmys
With the Emmy voting closed and the awards just over a week away, it's high time for me to resume giving you who I think should and who I think will win the major awards.

I've already given my picks for the Best Supporting Actor in a Drama, Best Supporting Actress in a Drama and Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy awards. Now we move on to the Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy category, where the competition is fierce... especially if you're on 'Modern Family.'

Nominees:
Ty Burrell, 'Modern Family'
Chris Colfer, 'Glee'
Jon Cryer, 'Two and a Half Men'
Jesse Tyler Ferguson, 'Modern Family'
Neil Patrick Harris, 'How I Met Your Mother'
Eric Stonestreet, 'Modern Family'

Who will win:
This is an extremely tough category to handicap, mainly because pretty much everyone in the category -- except for Cryer, who should submit himself as a lead actor -- deserves the award. However, because of the Academy's tendency to keep giving the award to the same people year in and year out (this award should be called the John Larroquette Award for the number of times he won it when he was on 'Night Court'), I'm going to have to painfully say that Cryer still has a good shot of taking it this year, especially if the three 'Modern Family' actors split people's votes.
