Modern Family Will Have a Gay Wedding. Sometime This Decade

Forget same-sex kissing: Modern Family is going to venture into the territory of same-sex marriage.

When viewer rage over the show not having Mitch and Cam kiss reached producers and writers, we were told it was because the Mitchell character fears PDA. But what happens when the two are up at the altar?

“There is no doubt that is going to happen,” says Eric Stonestreet, who plays Cam, about a marriage between he and Mitchell. “I don’t know how that would happen with the real life legality…Maybe it would be a destination (wedding). Us going somewhere that gay marriage is legal. But they have to save some of that stuff. We hope to be on the air for seven years.”

Heh. Sounds just like Barack Obama‘s plan: If they’re around long enough, they’ll get to it.

In the meantime, we’ve got guest star Nathan Lane (!) playing Cameron’s “flamboyant friend” Pepper, so that should be wonderful.
