That's a Big Bang delivery! Jesse Tyler Ferguson told Meredith Vieira a hilarious story involving one of his Modern Family costars and fellow primetime television comedy star Jim Parsons.
Ferguson, 39, appeared on The Meredith Vieira Show on Tuesday, April 7, where Vieira asked him: "I understand somebody was sending you sort of X-rated items in the mail. I wondered what kind of pervert would do that?"
"What kind of pervert would do that?" Ferguson replied. "His name is Eric Stonestreet, he plays Cam on Modern Family." On the ABC comedy, Ferguson and Stonestreet portray a gay couple, and it turns out that their funny dynamic on the series spills over into real life.
"He was sending me toys that he found on the Internet and labeling, with my name on it — not any sort of alias — to my house," Ferguson complained. "The worst part was he called me one day and said, ‘Did you get this package?’ And I said, ‘No, but sometimes my neighbors get my mail.'"
Unfortunately, one of those recipients is a big television star. "That neighbor happens to be Jim Parsons from Big Bang Theory," the actor told Vieira. "So I had to go over to Jim’s house and go, ‘Hey, did you receive anything in the mail?’ He said, ‘No, I didn’t. What was it.’ I ended up telling him what it was but see, the thing is… I usually receive Jim’s New Yorker Magazine. Oh God, how embarrassing! I receive his high-brow magazine and he’s receiving lewd things in the mail that he thinks I ordered. Which I didn’t."
