Eric Stonestreet Replaced Heidi Klum on 'AGT' Within a Matter of Hours After She Got Ill

Eric Stonestreet is sitting in for Heidi Klum on the judges panel on tonight’s all-new America’s Got Talent.

The actor, who starred with Sofia Vergara on Modern Family, was brought into the show within a matter of hours.

Fellow judge and executive producer Simon Cowell explained that “we didn’t have days to think about it. We had hours to think about it.”

He added, “Heidi obviously got ill and, for obvious reasons, she had to stay at home. Someone said, ‘Well, why don’t we hire Eric?’ And we said it’s a good idea because Sofia and Eric worked together and they have chemistry. He was a real trooper. He stepped in at the last moment.”

If you recall, Heidi came down with coronavirus like symptoms, but tested negative for the virus.

America’s Got Talent is airing NOW on NBC.

Eric Stonestreet & Jesse Tyler Ferguson Out-Prank Each Other on 'Modern Family' Set! (Video)

The joke is on Jesse Tyler Ferguson!

The 44-year-old actor and his Modern Family co-star Eric Stonestreet appeared on Wednesday’s (April 1) home-edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live! and got into the spirit of April Fool’s Day.

In honor of Modern Family coming to an end next week, host Jimmy shared a prank that Eric pulled on Jesse on the set of the hit ABC series before we were all in isolation due to the world health crisis.

“I have done a fair amount of pranks to Jesse, some small, some very small, some medium, some bigger pranks along the 11 years we’ve been associated,” Eric admitted to Kimmel.

In the clip, Jesse and Jimmy joined forces to get back at Eric, except there was one problem: Ferguson was being set up to be the victim once again. Ferguson planned to hook a forklift to Stonestreet‘s trailer and move it, then to get him with confetti. But Jimmy was involved, and the prank was on Ferguson the whole time. Stonestreet orchestrated for Ferguson to be doing his prank in a disguised earthquake simulator.
