Eric Stonestreet Talks About Modern Family's Upcoming 'Gay Agenda'

Ericstonestreet[SPOILERS]

Eric Stonestreet, the Emmy-award winning actor who plays Cam on ABC's "Modern Family" (and appeared in a hilarious 2011 sketch, at right, with co-star Jesse Tyler Ferguson) recently revealed a few upcoming episode secrets, proving that what happens in Vegas does not stay in Vegas. Of course, Cam and Mitchell's wedding is coming up and a bachelor party is inevitable. In true comedic fashion, though, the couple finds themselves in the midst of someone else's celebration rather than their own.

Entertainment Weekly reports:

“We just shot an episode that was kind of an anti-bachelor party episode in Vegas,” says the man who plays Cam. “When we get there we run into Langham, Mitchell’s ex played by the great Fred Armisen, and he’s there having his bachelor party. And they say ‘Well, while you’re here, feel free to stop by,’ and he hands me a piece of paper with all the happenings, and I turn and I go, ‘Wow, an actual gay agenda.’ So I sneak off and go and participate in their bachelor party while Mitchell gets a sauna and gets a message.”

Sounds like things may get a little rowdy, but will we see some ever-elusive "Modern Family" gay PDA? 

Head over to EW and listen to Eric Stonestreet's podcast! And let us know your favorite Cam/Mitchell moments in the comments below.


Mitch And Cam Evolve Their 'Modern Family' [Spoilers]: VIDEO

[SPOILERS]

On last night's season premiere of Modern Family, Mitch and Cam (arguably the most prominent gay couple on television today) celebrated the end of Prop. 8 by getting engaged. After lots of speculation (as well as some pressure from the ACLU), the Emmy-winning comedy had both characters drop to one knee simultaneously for a dual proposal. As the show enters its fifth season (as well as its first in syndication), Mitch and Cam continue to (sometimes slowly) broaden audiences' exposure to gay relationships on TV.

Watch the scene and see Eric Stonestreet discuss the possibility of a Mitch and Cam wedding on a recent appearance on The Ellen Show, AFTER THE JUMP...

Jeffrey Richman, one of the show's openly gay writers, tells THR how it went down:

As I started writing, I became unexpectedly emotional. I teared up writing it. I teared up hearing it read. And I completely teared up seeing that moment where they both just say "yes" at the exact same time. That was so moving for me. I felt like, "OK, maybe I got it right because I never cry at weddings." My boyfriend [actor John Benjamin Hickey] always reads the first draft and he called me in tears after he read this one.

10 Emmy Snubs: "The Americans," Julianna Margulies, "New Girl" and More

BY BOBBY HANKINSON

Yesterday's Emmy nominations gave us plenty to celebrate. The excellent Game of Thrones picked up 16 nominations (second only to American Horror Story's 17). Netflix was able to garner 14 nominations for its first batch of original programming. Emmy voters even managed to pleasantly surprise us by recognizing performances from Vera Farmiga (Bates Motel), Adam Driver (Girls) and Laura Dern (Enlightened).

Still, the choices were far from flawless. We've collected some critics' picks for the most egregious oversights, AFTER THE JUMP...

ACLU Urges 'Modern Family' Producers to Marry Mitch and Cam

Aclu_modernfamily

A new initiative of the ACLU, ACLU Action, has launched a campaign urging Modern Family writers to marry Cam and Mitch.

ModernfamilyThey write:

"The freedom to marry is being advanced in American living rooms as much as in court rooms," said ACLU Executive Director Anthony D. Romero. "As we wait for the Supreme Court to rule, we want to keep this issue on the minds and screens of Americans everywhere."

ACLU Action aims to activate the ACLU's 750,000 online supporters to have a political impact through social media and new grassroots organizing tools, and to reach out to new audiences, with its message of equal rights for all. By calling on Americans to "RSVP" that they will watch Cam and Mitch get married, the campaign will let the "Modern Family" producers know that a wedding episode would be a ratings hit. The campaign will put marriage equality before new and younger audiences through social media channels.

ACLU Action plans to deliver the "guest list" created by this RSVP to the producers of "Modern Family," Steven Levitan and Christopher Lloyd. The delivery will be timed to capitalize on the energy arising out of the landmark Supreme Court cases to be decided this summer, as the writers and producers are scripting the next season of "Modern Family."

Should you wish to join that list, you can do so here.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson reacted to the campaign via Instagram: "Love this! Thank you ACLU! Maybe once Prop 8 is overturned"
