I’ve added HQ behinds and stills from upcoming episode of the series. Enjoy them!
Ty Burrell is not an especially funny man. He’s sorry about that. “I don’t want to let anyone down here,” he says with a rueful grin. “When you get on a comedy show, people assume you’re a comedian. I’d say I’m more of a comedy nerd.”
He certainly looks the part, wearing geek-chic glasses, with thick, square frames. Add to that a decidedly thoughtful demeanour, and the resemblance between Burrell and the character that made him famous – Modern Family’s farcical “cool dad”, Phil Dunphy – soon begins to fade.
And yet, as Burrell fusses around me in the Los Angeles hotel suite where we have met, administering to every social nicety expected of a host putting a guest at ease, it becomes clear that, like Dunphy, he is a man who genuinely cares about people. And like his well-meaning but disaster-prone character, he’s also upbeat, amiable, and so nice it knocks you sideways. He’s just not stupid. Dunphy, on the other hand, has a Tumblr account dedicated to his “Phil’s-osophies” – “Dance until your feet hurt. Sing until your lungs hurt. Act until you’re William Hurt.”
I have added to the gallery HD screencaptures from last night Vegasian episode of Modern Family! Vegas, Vegas people! Lovely!!!

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — From the balcony of his room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, Ty Burrell can see two young girls darting across traffic-filled Wilshire Boulevard. His attention is drawn away from talking about his work in “Muppets Most Wanted” until it’s clear they’ve safely crossed the street.
It’s that paternal instinct that drives Burrell’s life these days. Not only is the Southern Oregon native the father to two girls, but he stars in the top network TV comedy “Modern Family.” And his latest work includes the family-friendly Muppets movie and the voice of the dog inventor in the animated “Mr. Peabody and Sherman.”
In “Muppets Most Wanted,” Burrell plays a French detective who tries to unravel the mystery behind a series of break-ins at museums that happen to be at the same location where the Muppets are performing.
Ty Burrell attends the VIP screening of ‘The Muppets Most Wanted’ at The Curzon Mayfair on March 24, 2014 in London, England.
