Craig T. Nelson Passed On Modern Family Over Money
TV veteran Craig T. Nelson admits passing on the role of Jay, played by Ed O’Neill, in ABC’s hit show Modern Family.
“I’m old enough to say it, I guess. That was it. I really wanted to do Modern Family and I really liked the script and I liked the people. I just said, ‘You know what? I’ve been doing this too long.’ We’re in the middle of a cutback here, ladies and gentlemen, in Hollywood and salaries have gone way, way down. I just felt disrespected to tell you the truth.”
