Ty Burrell has gained a lot of fans thank to play Phil Dunphy in Modern Family, but he’s had less success in film (even if he’s been popping up in things for years, such as Evolution, Black Hawk Down and Dawn Of The Dead). However he’ll be hoping he has better luck when he plays gay in Skeleton Twins.
Just last week we reported that Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader signed up to star in the movie, playing Maggie (Wiig) and Milo (Hader), who are twins who went their separate ways years ago, but when they coincidentally cheat death on the same day, the shock makes them reunite and figure out how their lives went wrong. Maggie starts to re-examine her marriage to nature-loving slacker Lance (Luke Wilson), while the gay Milo goes to visit old flame Rich (Burrell).
It’s not an easy reunion for the old lovers though, as Rich was fired when his affair with Milo was uncovered. This pushed him even further into the closet and so when they meet again, Rich is married to a woman and working in a bookstore.
The movie starts shooting in New York later this month. (Source: Variety)
