A Salute To Ed O’Neill

Television actors are lucky to end up on one successful series in their entire career, and the ones who managed to be on two are few and far between.  Ed O’Neill, who turns 71 today (April 12), is one of those few, and he did it while playing two vastly different characters:  Al Bundy from Married With Children and Jay Prichett on Modern Family.

In honor of O’Neill, we take a look at one very interesting clip from Modern Family that harkins back to the occupation Al Bundy held on Married With Children.  Of course, we doubt Al wouldn’t mind helping Sophia Vergara find a pair of shoes.

As a bonus, he’s a super cut of some of Al’s best insults.  WHOA BUNDY!

Al Bundy's Best Insults

There was only one man who could insult people like only Al Bundy could!
