Biography

Eric Stonestreet entertained millions of viewers each week with his sharp wit and impeccable comedic timing. The improv-trained actor delivered plenty of laughs, charm and heart as one-half of a same-sex couple raising an adopted Vietnamese child on the hit series, "Modern Family" (ABC, 2009- ). The show garnered praise for putting a twist on the traditional family unit, while the actor - who was straight offscreen - received positive feedback from the gay community. Stonestreet had already showcased his versatile talent with dramatic performances on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" (CBS, 2000- ) and "Nip/Tuck" (FX, 2003-2010), but it was his breakout role on the hilariously dysfunctional ABC comedy that kicked his career into high gear and cemented Stonestreet's place as one of television's most original and beloved sitcom dads.
