Simmering tensions in the battle over the spoils from a wildly successful sitcom boiled over in public Tuesday as five “Modern Family” stars filed a lawsuit against 20th Century Fox TV amid a stalemate in their contract renegotiation talks.
Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet and Sofia Vergara claim in the suit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, that the original contracts they signed for the show violate California’s seven-year limit on personal service contracts. That legal precedent was established in 1944 after actress Olivia de Havilland waged a long contract fight against Warner Bros.
The other adult star of the series, Ed O’Neill, was not named as one of the plaintiffs but has since joined the litigation in a show of unity with his co-stars.

Ed O’Neill’s daughters are doing all right for themselves.
Emmy contenders Christina Applegate (NBC’s Up All Night) and Julie Bowen(ABC’s Modern Family) both have called two of O’Neill’s characters dad. And like dutiful daughters, the women compared notes during The Hollywood Reporter‘s comedy actress roundtable.
“I grew up with Ed O’Neill andKatey Sagal as parents, so anything that I’ve done well or poorly you can blame pretty much on them,” said Applegate, who played daughter to O’Neill’s lovably crass Al Bundy on Married … With Children.

“We stopped shooting a few weeks ago, so I haven’t been around any of that stuff,” he tells E!. “I honestly haven’t even talked to anyone, this is all, like, hearsay. This is all, like, things that are spinning. I know nothing about it.”
What does he know? The people that are representing the cast of Modern Family are on the case. “We all have really good lawyers who are hopefully doing a great job,” he says.
Brothers & Sisters alum Gilles Marini will be hanging with some members of ABC’s Modern Family, TVLine has learned exclusively, in a storyline that is sure to befuddle Cameron and Mitchell.
In a Season 3 episode, Marini will guest star as Julian, a friend of a friend of Cameron and Mitchell’s whom they both assume is gay. That assumption, however, proves to be erroneous when the boys invite Claire (Emmy winner Julie Bowen) on a rare “fun night out” and end up leaving her with Julian –- and in short order it becomes clear that this fella is very, very straight.
