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.”
