Ty Burrell had considered giving up acting before landing a career-changing role in the TV comedy series Modern Family, he tells Siobhan Synnot
Ty Burrell is considering whether the time has come to claim his birthright. “I know about Sir John Burrell and The Burrell Collection in Glasgow,” he says cautiously. “And I know you call it Burrrel, and not Burr-EL, like we pronounce it. But I must be good for a painting or a statue or something.”
Well why not? These last few years Burrell has been scooping up all manner of goodies, including a starring role in America’s favourite sitcom, Modern Family, acting awards, and leads in two big family films this year.
Perched at the edge of his hotel seat, testing out a teabag with the authority of a man who has been inducted into Typhoo by months of filming the new Muppet movie in London, Burrell is tall, skinny and rather handsome in a dark, saturnine way.
“The Frankenbrow got me typecast as a lot of villains and jerks,” he says, pointing at his strong forehead, but as soon as he grins, that brooding overhang recedes into a goofy approachability that immediately and irresistibly reminds you of Phil Dunphy.
When we first heard about the Mr. Peabody & Sherman movie reboot we weren’t that thrilled. But then we witnessed Modern Family dad Ty Burrell transform into the white dog of our youth. And it works. Watch.
These three Peabody & Sherman clips show off a bit of the new movie’s humor, but if anything this movie is all heart. Mostly thanks to the vocal stylings of Burrell. He doesn’t sound exactly like original cartoon (actually he sounds nothing like him) but the tone is strikingly similar. The biggest change is more in his attitude. Mr. Peabody is a lot less condescending in this movie, more like a father to Sherman. It’s a kinder, gentler Peabody. Finding Burrell was definitely a good move in trying to translate this cartoon for modern audiences.
Even Sherman has been toned down a bit, but he still does wildly stupid things so you have that to look forward to. We’re cautiously optimistic about this movie.
I’ve added HD screencaptures from last night *amazing* episode of Modern Family, which is getting more and more better time passing. Enjoy them in our gallery!
