Matt LeBlanc could have played Phil Dunphy in Modern Family, the role made famous by Ty Burrell!
The 50-year-old star told USA Today the pilot script “came across my desk with an offer to play Ty Burrell’s role” years ago.
“I remember reading it thinking, this is a really good script, (but) I’m not the guy for this. I’d be doing the project an injustice to take this. I know what I can do, I know what I can’t do. Plus, I’m having too much fun laying on the couch,” Matt said.
Ty was obviously a great choice for the role – as he does an amazing job! He won two Emmys for his work on the show (and is nominated this year as well).1 of 1
