Ed O’Neil

Best known for his starring role on the successful 1980s sitcom Married…with Children as Al Bundy, Ed O’Neil could not get a break once the series ended in 1997. He starred in multiple failed pilots, including a reworked Dragnet, and made several guest appearances on series like Law & Order and 8 Simple Rules, as well as the films The Bone Collector and Little Giants. In 2009, he returns to television in the instant hit Modern Family playing, you guessed it, the patriarch to an over the top family.
