Rico Rodriguez Modern Family

How did you feel about landing a sitcom?
When I was going on auditions, it was nerve-racking. I’d always say to my mom that it would be awesome if I could get a series. When Modern Family came along, I said, “You know what, Mom? I believe I’m going to get this role.”

I’d ask you for your favorite acting job so far, but I’m guessing it’s Manny.
Yes, because I’ve never been that type of character before, but also a role on NCIS. It was my first action-type drama show. I was one of three main boys who find a gun and then they find a dead body, so that was fun.

Do you have any particular wishes for Manny?
To get a girlfriend. It would be cool to have a fake girlfriend.

Somebody get Manny a girlfriend quick… Any volunteers?

Don’t forget – you can still get “Who Da Manny” T-shirts.
