Ty Burrell, on whether it takes intelligence to play foolish characters, such as Phil Dunphy on “Modern Family”:

“I may be disproving that theory. But you may have to have some experience with being oblivious in real life,” he says with a chuckle. “I have had many experiences of my blind spots – plural – being made apparent to me after the fact. So you learn from that. But it is definitely fun to play somebody who’s not always right there.

“Believe it or not, that was the first character I ever played, which was with my brother. We would kind of improvise shtick for family members when we were kids. I was, basically, Phil. My brother was younger than me and much smaller at the time – I’m talking young, like 8 and 10. We got most of our laughs from him being the smarter, domineering boss who was impatient with me, and I was his big, dumb sidekick.”

Burrell, on being in a place in his career where he can do only projects he’s excited about:

“What a luxury. And it’s borne out of having made choices out of fear for so long. I made so many choices because I was afraid of being unemployed. I got really lucky because a lot of the movies I did, I am proud of. But there’s stuff that I did that I really just couldn’t – I didn’t have the nerve to go unemployed. There are certainly things that I did pass on, but most things, even if you’re not super-excited about it, you’re more excited about being employed.” {sbox}

ABC put online stills and behinds from next week episode of the series that sees the adults going Vegas for some fun.

The adults are Vegas-bound when Jay hooks them up with Excelsior Level hotel accommodations courtesy of one of his big clients, but after learning there’s an even higher level, Jay becomes obsessed with upgrading. Meanwhile, everyone’s sneaking around when Claire secretly hits the tables to win back money she lost years ago, Phil goes underground auditioning for a secret society of magicians, Cam ducks out of a spa day with Mitch to join their friend’s bachelor party shenanigans, and Gloria is determined to hide a female version of dog butler Barkley from Jay
