Cameron Tucker, do you take Mitchell Pritchett ...
Now, just wait a minute. Sure, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who plays Mitchell to Eric Stonestreet's Cam on ABC's Modern Family, may look like they are standing under a wedding canopy in this photo Ferguson posted to his WhoSay account, but the actor also included this caption: "It's not what it looks like. Or is it? Guess you'll have to wait to find out!"
What a tease.

It's a Modern Family reunion!
After a law suit over "illegal contracts" was resolved – the cast of ABC's hit comedy are back on set.
"First day back of Season Four on Modern Family! Fantastic in every way including Ty's homage to Freddy Mercury," Julie Bowen posted on her WhoSay account with a photo of her costar Ty Burrell sporting some serious facial hair.
Burrell and Bowen have good reason to be in cheerful about their return to work: They – along with Sofia Vergara, Eric Stonestreet, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Ed O'Neill – reportedly received raises and will be making as much as $175,000 per person per episode, with bonuses, along with a cut of back-end profits.

After a serious standoff with the show's production company, the Modern Family cast can get back to doing what it does best – being funny.
Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet and Sofia Vergara will all receive big raises for the upcoming fourth season, according to the Hollywood Reporter – as much as $175,000 per person per episode, with bonuses, along with a cut of back-end profits – after agreeing new contract terms with producer 20th Century Fox Television.
That's well above their current salaries of about $65,000 per episode.

On TV, they play one big (mostly) happy family.
But the cast of Modern Family is facing some serious off-screen drama after six of the show's lead actors filed a lawsuit Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court to void their contracts, according to legal documents obtained by PEOPLE.
Sofia Vergara, Ty Burrell, Julie Bowen, Eric Stonestreet, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Ed O'Neill, who was originally negotiating separately, say their 20th Century Fox Television contracts break California's "7-Year Rule," which prohibits personal services contracts that span longer than seven years. (Their current contracts oblige them to the Emmy-winning ABC series from 2009 to 2016.)

Modern Family's got itself a case of life imitating art!
While attending PaleyFest 2012 on Wednesday, Sofia Vergara revealed she's as equally unnerved by French bulldog Stella as her onscreen counterpart, Gloria Pritchett – thanks to a little ribbing by show creator Steven Levitan.
"It's not that I hate the dog!" she said. "It's that I'm not used to having a little dog on top of me and licking."
