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.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson Pledges $10K to Australian Gay Marriage Fight

Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson has pledged $10,000 of his own money towards the marriage equality efforts in Australia.

Wrote Ferguson on his marriage equality organization Tie the Knot’s website:

Jesse tyler fergusonLike many marriage equality advocates we were saddened to hear that Australia’s High Court recently overturned the law that legalized same sex marriage in their great country. A marriage equality bill had JUST passed the parliament in October, so our hearts went out to those people who were suddenly stripped of those rights. Couples who had wed in that short window had to face the reality that their marriages were now annulled. Having been through a similar situation with Proposition 8 here in California, we could really empathize with the frustration and sadness of those who supported and fought for marriage equality. Newlyweds ourselves, Justin and I kept thinking how devastated we would have been if suddenly we were no longer recognized as a legal couple.

Tie The Knot has always focused its efforts on marriage equality in the United States, but there is no doubt in my mind that this is a great opportunity to bring attention to the journey toward marriage equality that Australia is currently embarking on. We have great faith in their strength and perseverance…. so much so I am personally pledging $10,000 toward the marriage equality efforts in Australia.

It was announced last week that the cast and crew of Modern Family would be heading to Australia to shoot an upcoming vacation-themed episode.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson Named Celebrity Ambassador For Marriage Equality By ACLU: VIDEO

Jesse

Jesse Tyler Ferguson, the Broadway veteran and "Modern Family" star, has been named the Celebrity Ambassador for the ACLU's Out for Freedom campaign. The campaign is aimed at promoting the adoption of marriage equality across the United States, and Ferguson's involvement in the Ambassador Project, "a new initiative that joins personalities from the worlds of film, television, music and comedy with ACLU priority issues," will help promote its values.

The press release reads:

“I worked with the ACLU and the New York Civil Liberties Union a lot when I was living in New York. I was always very invigorated by the passion and the drive and the vast knowledge they have,” Ferguson said. “I learned so much just by working with them on policy and legislation and getting in touch with lawmakers and making my voice heard. I just felt like it was so important to keep that energy spinning. Having conversations with the people making our laws is so important, so I was really inspired to continue working with them. It just seemed like a no-brainer.”

Ferguson is already making a difference. He and his husband Justin Mikita, traveled to Ferguson’s home state of New Mexico in late September to rally people around the fight for the freedom to marry. Since then, the couple’s non-profit Tie the Knot has made a grant of $10,000 to the ACLU of New Mexico to support its work on marriage for same-sex couples.

Other Ambassadors include comedian Lewis Black, musicians Cyndi Lauper, Melissa Etheridge, and Harry Belafonte, and television host W. Kamau Bell.
