Julie Bowen proved as much when Entertainment Weekly editor Jess Cagle asked her to describe each of costars during a chat on EW Radio this week. Listen to their chat below, which explores why Eric Stonestreet (Cam) is such a wonderful contradiction, how Ariel Winter (who plays her on-screen teen daughter) has to hide her “sexy,” and more Family tidbits.

Could Modern Family be on the verge of an expansion? Quite possibly.
EW has confirmed that preliminary talks have begun for a possible Modern Family spin-off. Deadline first reported on the conversations.
One option currently on the table would see the new project centered on guest star Rob Riggle’s character, Gil Thorpe, who is Phil’s (Ty Burrell) nemesis.
The news comes just one week after Modern Family took home its fourth win for Outstanding Comedy Series at the Emmy Awards, and just days after its season 5 premiere garnered 11.4 million viewers.
'Modern Family' sneak peek: Mitchell and Cam celebrate Supreme Court decision on gay marriage -- EXCLUSIVE
It was a day that had many celebrating — and among those who lauded the Supreme Court’s decision on Prop 8 back in June? Mitch and Cam from Modern Family, of course!
And in this exclusive sneak peek from the season premiere, airing tonight at 9 p.m. on ABC, we get to share the happy moment with them! Well, it’s almost entirely pleasant — until someone spits up on the moment. You’ll see what we mean.
Meanwhile, we can’t help but wonder whether this announcement will cause Mitch and Cam to ask some important questions about their status as a couple — if you know what we mean. And this possibly spoilery photo from Jesse Tyler Ferguson has our hopes pretty high.

Workaholics and Pitch Perfect scene-stealer Adam DeVine will have a recurring guest role on Modern Family this season, EW has confirmed. DeVine will play nanny to Manny and new baby Joe in several episodes of the fifth season of the ABC comedy.
TV Guide quotes executive producer Christopher Lloyd, who shares that the character is a nice guy from the Midwest who is “fun and matches Gloria’s energy in the house. But he doesn’t want to just take care of the baby. He wants to sort of revive the entire household, which leads to some territorial clashes with Jay [Ed O'Neill] and Manny [Rico Rodriguez].”
Modern Family will premiere Wednesday, Sept. 25.
If you can find it in your heart to celebrate Valentine’s Day* a day early this year, your funny bone just might thank you. Tonight’s episode of Modern Family (9 p.m., ABC) is not only Cupid-themed, it veers from the show’s normal style of storytelling. “Heart Broken” will unspool each family’s story consecutively instead of cutting back and forth between them, and the three plots takes place on different days: Phil (Ty Burrell) and Claire (Julie Bowen) — or rather, alluring alter egos Clive Bixby and Juliana — kick off the festivities on Feb. 13, Gloria (Sofia Vergara) and Jay (Ed O’Neill) try to make the most of Feb. 14, and Cam (Eric Stonestreet) and Mitch (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) spend Feb. 15 cleaning up the mess of their wild party held the night before. Intrigued? Titillated? Etc.? Don’t answer yet. Mr. Burrell will now deliver a dozen
roses hints about the episode to EW.com. READ FULL STORY
Nope.

Not surprisingly, Jay seems to be enjoying this a little too much for Gloria’s liking. Check out this trap-setting clip from the episode, which airs at 9 p.m. on ABC. READ FULL STORY
