“Modern Family” stars Ty Burrell and Jesse Tyler Ferguson had little to say about the cast’s reported requests for raises for the next season of the hit ABC comedy – but fans of the show shouldn’t expect any major shakeups, the actors said.
“Oh, we don’t know anything yet,” Jesse told Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush over the weekend at an Operation Smile event in Park City Utah, when asked about the negotiations.
“What’s the status of the show?” Billy asked.
“We’re just letting other really wonderful people take care of that stuff and we just love our jobs,” Ty said.
While they didn’t want to discuss contract negotiations, Jesse said they will all return to the fold.
“We’ll all be back. It’s going to be very smooth,” he said.
In the meantime, the show has the season finale on the way in the coming weeks and Jesse hinted at big things to come.
“Well someone dies this year….I’m just kidding. Or am I?” he said, tilting his head to the camera. “We have a fantastic finale…I remember reading the script and just being very, very moved. Tears. That’s what you called table room tears.”
“Heavy crying?” Billy asked.
“It doesn’t turn into ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ if that’s what you’re asking,” Jesse said.
“It’s more ‘Little House on the Prairie,’” Ty chimed in.
