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.
