Eric Stonestreet sighs slightly when asked if some people are disappointed at finding out he’s not gay like the flamboyant character he plays with such zeal on Modern Family.

“I laugh all day,” Case, a 1998 E.C. Glass High School grad, said in a recent phone interview. “If you walk by my (editing) bay, you’d think I was crazy because I’m in this basement … and all you hear is me laughing out loud all the time.
