Congratulations to Modern Family for its recent Emmy Award® nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series. The show has now been nominated in this category for eight years a row! Here are some more fun facts about Modern Family:
- Modern Family breakout star, Sofia Vergara received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in May 2015.
- As everyone knows, the hit comedy series, Modern Family, is presented in mockumentary style, with the characters talking directly into the camera. The original show description explained that a Swedish movie director and foreign exchange student staying at the Dunphy’s was shooting a documentary on the American family.
- Luke Dunphy is nobody’s fool! Even though Modern Family’s Nolan Gould plays the not-so-bright Luke Dunphy, Gould is actually a child genius, and has been a member of MENSA since he was just four years old!
- Real life often inspires the situations in the hit comedy, in the early seasons of the show, Mitchell would have to come out to his dad several times before he accepted the truth. In real life, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who plays Mitchell, had to tell his real father three different times that he was gay over a period of years. Ferguson married actor/producer Justin Mikita in 2013.
- It’s no surprise Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet was the class clown, literally! When he was nine, Stonestreet created Fizbo the clown which is the name of the clown he plays on the show!
- Before becoming an actor, Modern Family star Ed O’Neill was signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers as a defensive lineman in 1969 at the age of 23. It wasn’t meant to be, and O’Neill would take jobs as a car salesman and substitute teacher before finding stardom as Al Bundy on the hit series Married with Children.
