Craig T Nelson

  1. Ed O’Neill, Modern Family, TV,  2009-   .     As any actor will attest, when  you hit  65 and you’re offered not one but two sitcoms and one role is a father in Parenthood and the other a grandfather in Modern Family  – you go with Pops. Far better for the image, ageist-wise. O’Neill proved perfect in what appeared a  21st century take on his previous hit, Married With Children, 1987-1997.  But that never won  five consecutive Emmys.
