So here I’ve got a collection of three videos of Eric’s interview for HuffPost Live, all reunited in one clip. Enjoy them!
Lane also pitched the idea of a spinoff based on his recurring, gay character ‘Pepper Saltzman’ in ABC’s MODERN FAMILY. It would be called A DASH OF PEPPER (of course!). Would you watch a series based on the flamboyant event planner?
The actor will be reunited with The Producers co-star Matthew Broderick in IT’S ONLY A PLAY on Broadway this fall. Among his past Broadway credits are The Addams Family, Waiting For Godot, The Odd Couple, The Play What I Wrote, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Love! Valour! Compassion!, Guys and Dolls, Present Laughter and more.
Live from Lincoln Center’s 40th Anniversary Season will air THE NANCE on PBS on Friday, October 10, 2014 9 p.m. – 11:30 p.m. ET.
My friend Carmel just opened her site (and our elite partner) dedicated to Leslie Mann. The site is amazing! Be sure to check, click click click click click on lesliemann.org
Julie visited The View yesterday to promote her new movie and Modern Family. Enjoy the video of the interview, unfortunately the only quality I could get.

Over the last five years,“Modern Family” has become one of network TV’s most successful comedies, winning the last four Emmy awards for “Outstanding Comedy Series” and making household names of Ty Burrell, Sofia Vergara,Eric Stonestreet andJulie Bowen. They’ve also succeeded in seamlessly working in a number of recurring guest stars including Nathan Lane,Shelley Long and Fred Willard. And one of Season 5’s guests, Adam DeVine, will be returning for more episodes in season 6.
DeVine played Andy the manny for six episodes last season, a hyper-aware caretaker for Jay and Gloria Pritchett’s infant son Joe.
“We have big plans,” co-creator Christopher Lloyd told Speakeasy. “We’ve actually written him into several episodes. He will be a very prominent part of our group.” DeVine last appeared in the season 5 finale, “The Wedding,” where he was faced with a decision to return home to Utah to try and reconcile with his long-term girlfriend or give the eldest Dunphy daughter Hayley a chance.
Over the last several years, DeVine has become an in-demand comedic actor, thanks to his cult stoner-Comedy Central show “Workaholics,” which features the misadventures of three college graduates adjusting to daily corporate life. DeVine is the co-creator and star. He also has a stand-up show called “Adam DeVine’s House Party” (also on Comedy Central) and is a lead voice actor on Cartoon Networks’ “Uncle Grandpa.”
His recent film work includes a standout performance as Bumper Allen in “Pitch Perfect,” which he’s reprising for “Pitch Perfect 2.”
His part on “Modern Family” though is a more earnest character than he typically plays, keeping in line with the show’s approach of avoiding snark in favor of comedic plots that are typically generated by the writer’s own personal experiences.
“It’s not just a comedy about sarcastic comments,” Lloyd said. “We try to find stories that have fine qualities to them. People tune in, can laugh and be touched at the same time.”
And we didn’t expect any nomination this year, for the 5th year. Oh c’mon we wanna win!!!
Outstanding Comedy Series – 2014
- Modern Family
- Orange Is The New Black
- Silicon Valley
- The Big Bang Theory
Also biggest congratulations to Jesse Tyler-Ferguson and Ty Burrell for the Supporting Actor nomination, Julie Bowen for the Supporting Actress nomination, Nathan Lane as Pepper Saltzman as Guest Actor in a Comedy Series, Gail Mancuso for Directing in a Comedy Series and Jeff Greenberg for Casting for a Comedy Series.
We do hope for each of you to win, sorry Ty or Jesse it needs to be chosen only one. We cannot avoid though to be a little bit sad and frustrated by the snubs of all other cast members Sofia Vergara, Ed O’Neill, Eric Stonestreet, Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould, Rico Rodriguez and Aubrey Anderson-Emmons. You all are winners to us, already! Congrats all and good luck guys!!!!!!!!!!
We truly want to wish Sofia a very happy birthday, the hottest, the funniest and the sexiest of mothers on tv (and real life too, let’s be honest!). HAPPY BIRTHDAY RAY OF SUNSHINE!!
I am so pleased to add the promoshoots of USA Network for Modern Family.
