Actors who give major zing to minor roles
The Detroit News selected six actors who give major zing to minor roles, one of them was Modern Family’s Rico Rodriguez :
(9 p.m. Wednesdays, ABC)
Character: Manny Delgado
Actor: Rico Rodriguez
Catch phrase or signature: No catch phrase but his droll delivery is undeniable.
How he steals the show: Wise beyond his years, Manny quotes William Shakespeare and plans love affairs with older women. At 11, Rodriguez was a relative unknown before this freshman comedy debuted; now he’s one of the most beloved kids on TV.
