Jesse Tyler Ferguson

Biography

Jesse Tyler Ferguson has received two Emmy Award nominations (2010, 2011) for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his work on Modern Family. In its first two seasons, the comedy has earned an Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.

No stranger to television, Ferguson received rave reviews and was honored by The Hollywood Reporter in 2006 as one of Ten to Watch for his role on the CBS ensemble sitcom, The Class. Additional television credits include Do Not Disturb and Ugly Betty.

Film credits include Untraceable, directed by Gregory Hoblit and starring Diane Lane, and Griffin & Phoenix, with Amanda Peet and Dermot Mulroney. Ferguson will next appear opposite Matthew Broderick in Wonderful World, a 2009 Tribeca Film Festival selection that marks the feature directorial debut of Joshua Goldin.

Ferguson made the decision to become an actor when he was 8 years old, and soon after joined the Albuquerque Children's Theater, where he remained a member for six years. After graduating high school, he moved to New York to attend the American Musical and Dramatic Academy and began performing in Broadway and off-Broadway productions, the most notable of which were the critically-acclaimed, Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (Outstanding Ensemble Performance winner, Drama Desk Awards, 2005; Distinguished Performance nominee, Drama League Awards, 2005), in which he played Leaf Coneybear; and the Public Theater Shakespeare in the Park production of A Midsummer Night's Dream (Distinguished Performance nominee, Drama League Awards, 2008). He recently returned to the Park in the 2010 productions of The Winter's Tale and The Merchant of Venice, where he performed alongside Al Pacino, Jesse L. Martin and Lily Rabe.
