‘Modern Family’ Star Talks Portraying A Gay Dad On TV

Eric Stonestreet has been busy giving interviews. In the one in Fancast Stonestreet shared how he felt about portraying the very special character, how he’d like to rid the world of reality programming, and what he might say to the more conservative audiences who are concerned about seeing gay fathers on TV.

Here are some highlights from the interview:

Do you feel you’re opening people’s minds about gay parenting?
It’s a really cool thing about doing what we do. By Jesse and I playing gay characters on TV – I’m not really looking to change people’s worlds and belief systems, all we want to do is make a comedy that’s funny and true and honest. But if, while doing that we can open people’s minds to the idea that just because two guys are raising a baby, it’s not the end of the world, that’s an awesome opportunity, to help people change their minds.

What do you say to the conservative folks who may have concerns about seeing this on their TV?
I always say to conservative people who are worried about two gay guys raising a baby on TV is they should continue watching people get raped and murdered on other shows. Like on CSI the other day they had a scene where someone took a person’s eyeballs out. I mean, how many ways can a person get murdered?

You have such amazing guest stars coming up.
This week we have Edward Norton (tonight). We have Minnie Driver. When these people are excited to do the show, that’s really cool. I didn’t work with [Ed]  specifically, my story has to do with Elizabeth Banks.

What was it like working with her?
She’s hilarious. Her energy level is amazing. It’s easy to see why she’s the star she is. I love everything about her. She plays mine and Mitchell’s good friend.

Modern Family Episode 8 Spoilers:
This week, Manny reveals an inappropriate crush on his cousin, which leads Jay to use dog-obedience techniques on him. Meanwhile, Ed Norton plays Claire’s anniversary present to Phil, and Elizabeth Banks appears as Mitchell and Cameron’s first baby.

And here is some spoilers for the Benjamin Bratt episode coming soon:
Ty Burrell talks about Benjamin Bratt’s gig as Manny’s long-lost father, Javier: “Javier is playing irresponsible, and they all have their tête-à-tête about it, but you don’t leave thinking anybody is a bad guy. We start to actually like Javier a little bit, and I think he’ll probably be recurring.” As for Phil, he’ll be under the weather during the episode, passing a painful kidney stone.
