Modern Family Producer Steven
Levitan says the show's long-awaited gay kiss is coming, E!
Over 13,000 fans of the show at the
Facebook page Let
Cam & Mitchell Kiss On Modern Family have been clamoring
for an onscreen kiss between gay couple Cameron (played by Eric
Stonestreet) and Mitchell (played by openly gay Jesse Tyler Ferguson)
since the show's May 5 episode titled Airport 2010, in which
Cameron and Mitchell were relegated to a hug after they argued while
heterosexual couple Phil (Ty Burrell) and Claire (Julie Bowen) kissed
and made up.
Levitan said Monday that the
Cameron-Mitchell gay kiss is coming, and added that the controversy
“bothered” producers who had planned a public display of
affection episode all along.
“We've had an episode planned for a
long time that dealt with that subject of [affection between the gay
characters],” Levitan said.
Ferguson attempted to tamp down
expectations: “Don't expect a Gone With the Wind type of
thing happening, I know the fans would like that.”
The men are expected to pucker up on
the second season's fourth episode.
