Every week, in a small conference room on the 20th Century Fox Studios lot in Los Angeles, a show is taking place that only a lucky handful of insiders will be able to observe. It is the first ‘table read’ of the new week’s episode of hit comedy series Modern Family. TV Guide’s Jenny Cooney Carrillo was invited exclusively to sit in on the read-through and stick around later for a chat.
TV GUIDE: WHAT IS THE TABLE READ LIKE FOR YOU ALL?
Ty Burrell (Phil Dunphy): It’s fun for us. Sometimes it’s the only time we are all in the same place in one week and it’s kind of the closest we get to really performing as a group. And if you have visitors in town, usually this is the day that I want them to be here to really get a feel for what it’s like.
Eric Stonestreet (Cameron Tucker): The table read is really where the creativity of the show, in every aspect, collides. Maybe the first season we were really going over our lines the night before or as soon as we got the script. But now, it’s a little looser and it’s the moment that the writers get to hear the words. .
As Oregon prepares to take on Florida State in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1, we got a chance to throw some questions at one of the Ducks’ biggest fans, Modern Family actor Ty Burrell. He did not disappoint.
1. If you could describe the team in one word, what would it be?
2. Do you have a game-day tradition or superstition?
Yes, traditionally I like to get really nervous, even if we’re favored by 35. Then we like to sit down and watch it as a family and scream at the television. My mom is a lovely woman, but in front of a game she has the mouth of a sailor that other sailors find offensive. Then we all enjoy passing out from the exhaustion of the aforementioned nerves and screaming and such.
3. Finish this sentence: If my school wins the national title, I’m going to…
Have a joy seizure.
4. Where will you be watching the playoff?
Hopefully from the sidelines, but if I’m not able to make it, then I’ll be repeating the procedure in answer number 2.
5. Who’s your favorite player on the team?
Hard not to say (Marcus) Mariota here. He checks all the boxes, both as a player and a person. That said, Tyler Johnstone is a great kid who’s been fighting through a lot with a great attitude. So, Tyler Johnstone. Oh wait, Pharaoh Brown is a great young man too. Sorry, there’s too many.
