Actor Craig T. Nelson has sensationally revealed he turned down the patriarch role on TV comedy "Modern Family" for a similar part in "Parenthood" - because he was offered more money. Producers for both shows wanted the veteran to lead their casts but Nelson went for the best deal, leaving Ed O'Neill to replace him on "Modern Family"....
