Eric Stonestreet visited Ellen DeGeneres as she spent the week at Universal Orlando Resort for a live audience episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show". The episode, which was taped on Sunday, April 3 and aired on Wednesday, is the fifth time Ellen brought her show to the theme park.
Eric was the guest on the extra sunny day. While perspiring, he sat down for a talk, debuted a raw footage from his show "Modern Family" and took up Ellen's challenge. In the middle of the interview, the host let him show the audience a clip where he pulled a prank on co-star Jesse Tyler Ferguson. And then to close out the show, Ellen convinced the actor to a round of CityWalk the Plank.
Ellen actually taped two shows on Sunday and she also had LL Cool J taking on a quiz and walking the plank. This particular episode aired a day earlier than Eric's. In companion of Eric, Ellen invited Kelly Clarkson who performed "Since You Been Gone" and a medley of her hits.
