Eric Stonestreet sighs slightly when asked if some people are disappointed at finding out he’s not gay like the flamboyant character he plays with such zeal on Modern Family.
Some devoted fans of the TV sitcom have criticized him on Twitter for cussing or doing things they believe his character Cameron Tucker wouldn’t.
Others who maintain they can’t see him as anyone but Cam even said they were surprised to see him in this summer’s Bad Teacher, a raunchy comedy about a foul-mouthed, junior high school teacher played by Cameron Diaz.
“That’s the sort of thing I’ve got to stop caring about,” said Stonestreet, 39, who will be hosting a show at Montreal’s Just For Laughs comedy festival next week.
“People are disappointed sometimes but I hope they understand that I’m an actor playing a character. They love the character and they might like me too if they give me a chance.”

Modern Family has taken another step toward re-casting Baby Lily: The ABC comedy is spreading the word around the casting community that it is looking for an “Asian, 3-to 4-year-old” to play the daughter of Mitchell and Cameron. The role is currently played by Jaden and Ella Hiller, the docile and very quiet twins who have traded off portraying Lily for the last two seasons.
There is still a chance the Hillers will stay on the show, but the writers want to keep their options open.

“Modern Family,” last year’s top comedy series, was the most-nominated sitcom with 17 bids.
“Modern Family,” which should be favored to repeat as best comedy, once again dominated the supporting acting categories with Julie Bowen and Sofia Vergara representing the show on the women’s side and Ed O’Neill, Eric Stonestreet, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Ty Burrell earning nominations for the men. O’Neill’s nomination was particularly satisfying, since he was the only member of the show’s main cast be excluded last year.
