Jesse Tyler Ferguson has been quite busy since ending his 250-episode stint on “Modern Family” as Mitchell Pritchett, including a part in the Disney+ “High School Musical” series in 2022, and the upcoming film “Cocaine Bear” which is set for release in 2023. Directed by Elizabeth Banks, Ferguson acts opposite other recognizable faces like O’Shea Jackson Jr., Ray Liotta, Margo Martindale, and “Game of Thrones” star Kristofer Hivju.
In addition to showing his talent in on-screen projects, Ferguson also has been keeping up with his long-established live performance career. Having performed in a number of productions throughout the years, including “On The Town,” “The Producers,” and “Spamalot,” he signed on alongside “Grey’s Anatomy” star Jesse Williams in the 2022 production “Take Me Out,” for which he won the Tony Award for best performance by an actor in a featured role. “Take Me Out” also won the award for best revival of a play.
Shortly before his Tony win, Ferguson announced via Instagram that he and his husband of almost 10 years Justin Mikita are expecting another child soon, so it sounds like both his personal and professional life are flourishing post “Modern Family.”
