'Modern Family's' Jesse Tyler Ferguson: 'I have crushes on all the Jonas Brothers'

"Modern Family" star Jesse Tyler Ferguson feels a certain amount of responsibility playing Mitchell, one half of the show's gay couple. "With this show, it was never a question about quote unquote staying in the closet -- which I've never been in," he tells Out. "With 'Modern Family,' I was very eager to talk about my sexuality because I think there is a responsibility that comes with playing a married gay couple on network television."

Eric Stonestreet on being a Modern Family

One of the biggest success stories of the TV season is "Modern Family," ABC's rejuvenation of the family sitcom, albeit a slightly twisted take. Most actors in the show's ensemble are veterans of other series, which run the gamut from iconic to swiftly canceled. For example, "Modern Family" patriarch Ed O'Neill will forever be beloved as "Married ... With Children" dad Al Bundy, while his onscreen son Jesse Tyler Ferguson previously starred on the short-lived sitcom "The Class," and TV daughter Julie Bowen has a trio of solid series ("Lost," "Boston Legal," and "Ed") under her belt. Ty Burrell, playing Bowen's clueless husband, was a regular on two previous series, as was Sofia Vergara, who plays O'Neill's trophy wife. To Read More Click Here .

His Home Life Is Fodder for 'Modern Family'

'All of our stories come from real life,' Steven Levitan, co-creator and executive producer of ABC's 'Modern Family,' told 1,200 fans at a recent Paley Center for Media event in Beverly Hills. Asking his wife, Krista, to stand, he told the PaleyFest group that she really did smash his expensive television remote control into a thousand pieces and left it by their front door for him to find. He then introduced their son, Griffin, whom he was obliged to shoot with a BB gun after Griffin shot his cousin; and daughter, Hannah, whose video chat with her friends caught him wearing nothing but his underwear. All raw material for a guy hailed as a savior of the half-hour television comedy for the ber-hit he created with longtime collaborator Christopher Lloyd. To Read More Click Here .

'Modern Family' preview: Mitchell vs. Dora the Explorer

All the ads for Wednesday's (April 14) "Modern Family" have focused on a youth-league basketball game involving Manny (Rico Rodriguez), Luke (Nolan Gould) and their respective fathers. But there's another story in the episode that has us intrigued too. Not that the promos haven't been funny. Phil (Ty Burrell) naming his fists "The Captain" and "Tennille"? Gold. So is the idea of excitable Dharma Initiative head of research Stuart Radzinsky -- or, OK, Eric Lange, the actor who played Radzinsky on "Lost" -- as the boys' hoops coach. What you haven't seen in ABC's ads, though, is a subplot involving Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) adjusting to the fact that Mitchell is now between jobs. As you'll see in the clip below, neither one is exactly taking to the new arrangement. You'll also see Ferguson and Stonestreet continue to deliver the best talking-head segments in the show, including Mitchell's homicidal urges toward a certain beloved children's show character. "Modern Family" airs at 9 p.m. ET Wednesday on ABC. Source & Preview

Sneak Peeks - Modern Family 1.20 "Benched"

A new episode of Modern Family will be airing on April 14 and ABC has released three sneak peeks from the upcoming episode. A FAMILY IS LIKE A SPORTS TEAM SOME MEMBERS ARE FIRST-STRINGERS AND OTHERS GET BENCHED, ON ABC'S "MODERN FAMILY". "Benched" - When Luke and Manny's hot-tempered basketball coach quits in the middle of a game, Jay and Phil both jockey to fill the position. Claire and Gloria each struggle with the realization that they might not be number one in their children's lives anymore, and Mitchell takes Cameron along to meet a prospective employer, but Cameron's big personality doesn't necessarily help to make a good impression, on "Modern Family," WEDNESDAY, APRIL 14 (9:00-9:30 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
