5 Things You didn’t know About Modern Family!
1. His character might not be the brightest bulb in the shed, but in real life Nolan Gould is a genius—literally. Let’s put it this way, he graduated high school at age 13. Yeah, that smart! He also became a member of Mensa at the age of four—holy IQ!
2. Can you imagine turning down a role in Modern Family? Rob Huebel definitely felt major regret by saying no to the role of Phil Dunphy.
3. Another star also passed on joining the cast. So which leading man was originally offered the part of Jay Pritchett? Craig T. Nelson!
4. Remember how Jay kept forgetting that Mitchell was gay in the early seasons? This was added in after the producers heard Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s real experience with coming out to his father three times.
5. Oopsie! You know how Mitchell and Cameron adopted their bundle of joy from Vietnam? Well, it turns out that Vietnam has not yet legalized single parents or same sex couples to adopt children from their country.
