Speaking to TV critics at a press conference in LA, ‘Modern Family’ and ‘Married … With Children’ star Ed O’Neill praised ‘Glee’ star Jane Lynch, then slammed her 2010 Emmy win.
“I love Jane, honestly I do,” O’Neill said, TV Guide reports.
“I’m dying to star in one of Christopher Guest’s movies alongside her, but I don’t think she should have gotten the Emmy for that part. Sue Sylvester is just a one-note character.”
O’Neill submits his onscreen wife Sofia Vergara should have won the Emmy.
“Sofia is just so, so funny. I don’t think people realize how hilarious she is. She’s so sharp with her wit, it’s amazing.”
O’Neill also recounted his disinterest in getting back into the sitcom game after spending 10 years on ‘Married … With Children.’
“Then I read the ‘Modern Family’ script, and I said to myself, ‘Oh God, this is so good.’ I put the script down and came back and read it a second time and thought, ‘I have to do this.’”
