It might not be Halloween quite yet, but that doesn’t mean Ellen DeGeneres is going to miss out on an opportunity to scare one of her famous guests.
On Wednesday (Sept. 24), “Modern Family” star Eric Stonestreet stopped by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” with bodyguards in tow. Why? Well, because he was protecting himself from the Queen of Pranks who has scared him on the show many times before.
“These are my two best friends, Paul and Stacey, here to have my back today, Ellen,” says Stonestreet. “They are gonna go back stage [and] create a perimeter.”
Unfortunately for Stonestreet, his bodyguards aren’t able to help him when a clown pops out from a nearby coffee table.
