The Writers Guild of America has tapped Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet to host the WGA Awards’ west coast ceremony. Ferguson and Stonestreet play the adorable gay couple Mitch and Cam on ABC’s hit comedy Modern Family.
The WGA press release contained statements from the actors. From Eric Stonestreet:
I am humbled, honored and excited to be asked to host the WGA Awards. I’m also thankful that the WGA has recognized me as an individual apart from my co-star Jesse Tyler Ferguson. I am very fond of Jesse but also very sick of him. Did you know we’re not an actual real couple? And I’m tired of people thinking I can’t exist without him. Anyway, I look forward to a great evening.
From Jesse Tyler Ferguson:
I am honored to co-host the WGA Awards with Eric. I love Eric so much and any opportunity I have to be around him in the public eye or in private I will jump at. I love that he can’t exist without me. I feel like we are an actual couple sometimes. He doesn’t know it yet but I am having a custom three-legged tux made for us later today. Anyway, I look forward to a great evening. With Eric.
The awards will be held Feb. 5th in both Los Angeles and New York.
