'Modern Family': Jesse Tyler Ferguson teases the wedding, makes a few last-minute confessions of his own -- VIDEO

On Part 2 of Modern Family‘s season finale (airing May 21 at 9 p.m. ET ABC), Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cam (Eric Stonestreet) should finally make it down the aisle. “The second episode continues on with that thread of pure chaos just trying to get this wedding to go off ,” Ferguson tells EW. “But what I’m really proud of that you’re going to see is the real emotion. The writers were really great with handling that moment of the actual wedding. They let Mitchell and Cam exchange vows. I’m sure they’ll cut around a lot of it — that language can get a little dry at times — but for us, it was really beautiful to be able to say ‘I do’ to each other and to really have that moment of being married.”

The show’s writers had a lot to live up to: “For my real wedding [to lawyer Justin Mikita last July], we had Tony Kushner officiate our wedding. He won the Pulitzer Prize and Tony for writing Angels in America and is an Academy Award nominee for writing Lincoln, so I definitely put the pressure on our writers,” Ferguson says. “I said, ‘We had Tony Kushner write our ceremony…so good luck.'”

Expect to see Mitchell and Cam’s first dance as well. “I’m not sure if the song that we actually danced to is the one that they’re going to use, but for the purposes of shooting, we were dancing to ‘At Last,'” he says. The classic Etta James version? “No. The Jesse Tyler Ferguson version,” he deadpans. “I re-recorded it. It’s available on iTunes.”

For more of Ferguson’s trademark wit, check out his EW Pop Culture Personality Test below. He reveals his first — and current — celebrity crush, what he’ll really sing if you get him karaoking, and why he’ll never live down his senior portraits.  READ FULL STORY

Jesse Tyler Ferguson weighs in on Alec Baldwin controversy

You may recall that Modern Family‘s Jesse Tyler Ferguson professed his crush on 30 Rock star Alec Baldwin in a 2010 video championing the legalization of gay marriage in New York, and Baldwin responded with a video, also for FightBackPac.com, showing his support (“Because no one tells a New Yorker that they can’t marry Jesse Tyler Ferguson”). So how does Ferguson feel about Baldwin’s recent headline-grabbing outburst in which he allegedly called a photographer a “c–ksucking f-g” (or a “c–ksucking fathead,” as Baldwin later claimed)?

“Whether or not he said it or not, it [has] brought to attention that that’s not to be said. [C--ksucker is] not a good word. That’s a no-no word,” Ferguson tells Entertainment Weekly editor Jess Cagle in an interview that will air Thursday, Nov. 21 at 2 p.m. ET during The Editor’s Hour on EW Radio (SiriusXM 105). “I have met him several times, and he’s completely lovely, and certainly I know he’s a supporter of marriage equality, so I was kind of confused by it all,” Ferguson says. “But I think he’s a very talented actor, and I feel for him going though something that seems a little rough right now.” Listen to the clip below.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson fights for attention as 'The First Gay Bachelor' -- VIDEO

The always hilarious folks over at Funny or Die decided to put a “progressive” spin on the long-running ABC reality show The Bachelor, this time with a gay man handing out the roses to eligible bachelors. But clearly, a homosexual take would be a little more complicated.

George Takei serves as host for the show in which Modern Family‘s Jesse Tyler Ferguson plays Bryden (not to be confused with contestants Bryden G. and Bryden H.), the bachelor looking for love. Unfortunately, he finds that the other contestants are just all stereotypical gay men who care more about themselves than the man they are trying to compete for. And they all happen to be trial attorneys.

Check out the bachelor-only version of The Bachelor below:

When Jesse Tyler Ferguson grew up in New Mexico, Heisenberg was just a German physicist, not a porkpie-hat-wearing teacher-turned-meth kingpin.

But the Modern Family star clearly supports the White family’s Albuquerque takeover: When he visited his home state over the weekend, Ferguson and husband Justin Mikita took a tour of all the locations made famous by Breaking Bad and posted pics online.

First stop: Walt’s house, though that doesn’t look like a green Aztek in the driveway …

After the Oscars: Stars celebrate at Governors Ball, InStyle party, and more

Once the Oscars had all been handed out, it was time to party in Hollywood. EW made the rounds last night at the Governors Ball and other events around town. Read to find out who was partying into the wee hours!

Immediately following the Oscar ceremony, stars flocked upstairs to the Governors Ball. Catered for the last 19 years by Wolfgang Puck, stars ate delicacies like smoked salmon and caviar on Oscar-shaped crackers, chicken pot pie with black truffles, and chocolate soufflé with espresso ice. Attendees were treated to the sounds of crooner and pianist Michael Feinstein, who played Broadway and movie classics – quite in keeping with the music theme of the ceremony itself.

Around the room, celebs hobnobbed and drank champagne. Les Miserables Best Actor nominee Hugh Jackman and his wife sat near the stage with his family, in from Australia for the occasion. Said Jackman of being on stage earlier in the night: “It was an unbelievably fun experience to perform at the Oscars — and so much more relaxing not to have to host.”
