As we mentioned a minute ago, Ty Burrell had a few notable roles on his resume before starring in Modern Family. Born in Oregon in 1967, Burrell was well into his 30s when he had a guest role in a 2000 episode of Law & Order.

He landed his first film role opposite David Duchovny and Julianne Moore in the 2001 movie Evolution. Burrell also played a part in Black Hawk Down the same year. He quickly built his credibility and proved his range in movies such as Dawn of the Dead in 2004, Fur with Nicole Kidman in 2006, National Treasure: Book of Secrets in 2007, and the Marvel movie The Incredible Hulk in 2008.

On the small screen, Burrell landed leading roles on the TV shows Out of Practice and Back to You. Both series lasted just one season each, but Back to You led to his part on Modern Family. Show creators Steven Levitan and Christopher Lloyd had Burrell in mind when they created the Phil Dunphy role, according to Biography.
