AceShowbiz - Julie Bowen got into the spirit of Halloween early on the set of "Modern Family". The Emmy-winning actress was spotted dressing as Wonder Woman while filming the ABC sitcom on Thursday, September 7 on a lake in Los Angeles.
The 47-year-old star and her co-star Ty Burrell, who plays her character Claire Dunphy's husband, seemed to have a blast while filming what seems to be a Halloween episode. They were seen navigating a pumpkin-shaped canoe.
Bowen rocked a red corset top and mini blue skirt inspired by the DC superhero's costume, complete with a headband. At one point, she lifted up her skirt, flashing her derriere to paparazzi who were taking pictures.
Other stars spotted on the set that day were Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter and Nolan Gould, who play the duo's on-screen children. Interestingly, the three young stars and Burrell wore their daily outfits, unlike Bowen who dressed up.
It's unclear when the Halloween episode will air. The new season of "Modern Family" kicks off Wednesday, September 27 at 9 P.M. on ABC.
"Modern Family" was renewed for two more seasons in May, after the cast signed rich new deals. Ed O'Neill, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet and Sofia Vergara reportedly got their paycheck increased to nearly $500,000 per episode for the next two seasons, from approximately $350,000 per episode in the previous contracts.
" 'Modern Family' has been the centerpiece of our comedy brand for eight seasons and we are thrilled to have it on our schedule for two more years," ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said at the time. "Steve and Chris have created such endearing characters, and the cast is second-to-none."
Co-creator Christopher Lloyd added, "There is so much more to explore in the lives of this family, and so many pressing needs in the lives of our own actual families to go on ignoring, that this timing could not have worked out any better. Truly, it's a humbling experience. Ty Burrell has already pointed out that Alexander the Great's entire reign only lasted 8 1/2 years (326 -317 BC) so yes, everyone is deeply humbled by this."
