Matthew Broderick Plays Phil’s Potential New Boyfriend In “Modern Family”

It’s Sweeps Week, and Matthew Broderick is popping up on tonight’s episode of Modern Family as an old classmate who isn’t sure if Phil (Ty Burrell) wants to be buddies or boyfriends.
The two men meet at the gym and Phil invites Broderick’s character back to his house: “His whole family is away, and I think it’s a different type of date than he does,” says the former Ferris Bueller. “There’s a lot of mixed messages and a lot of innuendos by accident.”
The mistaken-gay plot is a tried-and-true TV trope, and with Burrell being so utterly DILF-y we can’t fault the show for going there.
“I’m a big fan of the show… Ty’s so great, so to suddenly be on screen with him is a real pleasure,” Broderick tells HuffPo. Burrell gushed right back: “I’m such a huge, huge fan of his. He’s really superb… I was really nervous and excited to work with him.”

Oh, get a room boys.

Modern Family airs tonight at 9pm on ABC.

      Cheers for Modern family… and for always finding ways to entertain the masses with gay plots just as long as they do not become the “Mason family”!.
