Bio

Jesse Tyler Ferguson is an American actor best known for his television comedy roles as Richie Velch in The Class (2006-2007) and as Mitchell Pritchett on Modern Family.

Ferguson received rave reviews and was honoured by The Hollywood Reporter in 2006 as one of Ten to Watch for his role on the CBS ensemble sitcom, The Class. Additional television credits include Do Not Disturb and Ugly Betty.

Ferguson's film credits include Untraceable, directed by Gregory Hoblit and starring Diane Lane, and Griffin & Phoenix, with Amanda Peet and Dermot Mulroney.

He appeared opposite Matthew Broderick in Wonderful World, a 2009 Tribeca Film Festival selection that marked the feature directorial debut of Joshua Goldin.

Born in Missoula, Montana, Ferguson made the decision to become an actor when he was eight years old, and soon after joined the Albuquerque Children's Theater, where he remained a member for six years.

After graduating high school, he moved to New York to attend the American Musical and Dramatic Academy and began performing in Broadway and off-Broadway productions, the most notable of which were the critically-acclaimed Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (Outstanding Ensemble Performance winner, Drama Desk Awards, 2005) and the Public Theater Shakespeare in the Park production of A Midsummer Night's Dream (Distinguished Performance nominee, Drama League Awards, 2008).
