Transcript for Eric Stonestreet on 'Modern Family's' Final 2 Episodes
Obviously for the nuniest week ever cannot not have eric stonestreet from "modern family," of course. Yes. Before we get started let's take a sneak peek. Tonight's "modern family." You're poking me. I know, sweetie but if i don't get the pins just right your bun could fall out during your routine and it could mess you up. Let's test it out. All right. Jump. Good, spin. Now give me beyonce. Ooh-ooh. Okay, I've done everything I can do. It's up to you now. you never had a chance to see it. No, that's the first time I've seen that clip. I don't get to see the episodes until america gets to see them. Jesse tyler ferguson with us yesterday. We saw him being ultra competitive in a later scene. He said he would be that dad. He's going to be that dad who's rooting at all costs. If you had a daughter in a gymnastics competition, what kind of dad would you be? I'd probably be pretty competitive. I think that's where the story line comes from, one of our writers, danny, his daughter is in gymnastics and found himself internally rooting against another girl. It's your kid so -- I have a 4 1/2-year-old daughter playing soccer and i can't believe I have semi malicious thoughts about other 4-year-olds. Shooting done, season in the can. How was it to get another one -- it feels so good. show and watches it as consistently as they do and can't believe I've been on, you know, such a great tv show for four years and we're all looking forward to going back. We have a good thing going there. We all love each other and get along great and our writers are fantastic, so we're all eager to get back in august to start season five. The up front season when all the networks show the new shows to advertisers here in the city and I was struck just yesterday how many single camera shows there are. How good does it feel to be part of an ensemble that really reinstituted that as an effective way to tell a story. Paes a lot of shows before us that were that way. No doubt that "modern family" hit something in hollywood and, you know, lightning struck and people rung to that and try to re-create it when they can, so it feels good to know that other shows want to be a version of "modern family" somehow, but, you know, it's good for tv. It's good for people. I love that people are watching comedies and letting actors act and writers write and maybe get rid of some of that other stuff on tv a little bit. You know, on twitter I follow you. I always feel your pain as a sports fan, as well. Yeah. Yesterday in kansas signing andrew -- yes. Are the wildcats ready? Well, we have to get ready. We're not ready but I love kansas state. That's where I went. I actively root against k.U. As much as I can. Yeah. I did it right there. The rivalry is awesome and proud to be a wildcat just like jayhawks are proud to be jayhawks. I just don't get them. What's this rock talk? We did see clowns in the audience and this is actually -- I understand -- lihe clown, this was a big thing for you. Oh, yeah, when I was a kid i wanted to be a clown in the circus. I wanted to travel with ringling brothers and didn't get that opportunity but I said it all worked. Now I get to be the clown in the biggest circus of all, hollywood. What goes into auditioning for clown school? I don't think there is a clown college anymore but I went to kansas city in chicago twice or each once and auditioned and had to do a little clown accept and try my best to show that i could be a clown. Can you do like the balloons? Yeah, but it's more physical comedy and falls and gags, you know, you have to realize you have to communicate with the top ring of the top row of an arena. I would argue it's worked out for you. It's worked out. Again, it is obviously a phenomenal show for us each week. Something fell in times square. They are flowers and they are
