After much fan pressure to have “Modern Family’s” adorable gay couple share a kiss, one-half of the hilarious twosome confirms it’s in the can.
“Yes, we filmed the kiss episode,” Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who plays Mitchell, told E!Online’s Marc Malkin. “It’s a very organic kiss. People are going to be very surprised when they see it.”
More than 13,000 fans took to Facebook asking the show’s producers to let Cam and Mitchell share a kissing scene. In response to the movement, producers issued a statement.
It read: “Cameron and Mitchell are a loving, grounded, committed, and demonstrably affectionate couple and have been from the beginning of the series. It happens that we have an episode in the works that addresses Mitchell’s slight discomfort with public displays of affection. It will air in the fall and until then, as Phil Dunphy would say, everyone please chillax.”
Now that the scene has been shot, Ferguson says he’s also pretty sure he delivered Eric Stonestreet’s (the straight but convincingly gay Cam on the show) first man-on-man smacker saying, “I’ll be shocked and offended if I wasn’t.”
Either way, we’re sure it’ll be one scene Eric and the show’s fans will never forget.
