‘Modern Family’ Reunion At SAG Awards Has Cast Missing Money, Talking Reboot & Taking Swipe At ‘The Gilded Age’

The cast of Modern Family reunited at the SAG Awards on Saturday to present the Ensemble in a Comedy Series category won by The Bear.

Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Ed O’Neill, Sofía Vergara, Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson took the stage and talked about what they have been up to following the end of their comedy series.

Burrell opened up the floor, asking the cast if they missed being together with Bowen, noting that being on a show for 11 seasons “never happens.” O’Neill chimed in, saying, “It’s happened twice to me,” alluding to the 11-season run of Married with Children.

“Yeah, my new show Griselda is also, for a month already, No. 1 in 90 countries,” Vergara said.

Stonestreet interjected and asked Ferguson to pay up, as they had seemingly placed a bet as to how long it would take Vergara to mention the success of her Netflix show.

Ferguson said he got “a little nostalgic for the golden days” and noted, “But a life after a big hit show, it can be nice too.”

“Ah geez, who are we kidding?” O’Neill griped. “I didn’t want to get emotional up there, but you know what I miss about it most of all? The money!”

Ferguson then asked if it was “too early to talk about a reboot” of the show because, attending the SAG Awards, he said he had to “park a mile away from here.”

Bowen then brought up Ferguson’s Broadway career, which she said the actor always said he wanted to return to his roots.

“That’s just something actors without hit shows say, OK?” Ferguson said. “There’s a reason Tony Award is the last letter of EGOT.”

Vergara asked O’Neill to “pay up, I told you he was going to mention it.”

As the crowd laughed, Ferguson continued, “I know! I know! I’m just kidding, cast of Gilded Age. I’m just kidding.”

The cast of the HBO drama series includes theater stars like Carrie Coon, Morgan Spector, Louisa Jacobson, Denée Benton, Harry Richardson and Blake Ritson, among many more.
