Modern Family's Ty Burrell Won't Miss This Part About Playing Phil Dunphy

There’s one thing Ty Burrell won’t miss about portraying Phil Dunphy on Modern Family!

The 52-year-old actor stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Monday (March 2) to discuss his hit show, which is coming to an end in April.

“The part I won’t miss so much is that people assume that you are the character,” Phil – er, Ty – told host Stephen Colbert.

“I’ve been lucky enough to do a ton of physical comedy over the last 11 years – and I genuinely love it – but this kind of curious thing has happened over that time,” he continued, explaining, “I’m actually a clumsy person … and well, season five maybe, I would trip on a curb and somebody would go like, ‘Yeah!’ … or I’d take even more of a stumble and people would be like, ‘Yeah, that guy!’”

He added that even his own family is guilty of doing this!

Watch the video now to hear Ty Burrell talk about Modern Family, his new show Duncanville, and more.
