Ed O'Neill is an American actor best known to television audiences for portraying sitcom fathers, notably the boorish, misogynistic Al Bundy in the long-running television FOX comedy series Married with Children and more recently, the patriarch Jay Pritchett in Modern Family. Prior to Married with Children, O'Neill had previously been known for playing 'hard types' in such films and television series as The Dogs of War and Miami Vice. During his run on the FOX sitcom, O'Neill found it hard to get cast in any role that was not comedy-related. In fact, after filming the role of a US Naval officer at a court martial in the 1991 film Flight of the Intruder, his role had to be recast after the film studio encountered disastrous test screenings where his appearance elicited unwanted laughter (the scene was eventually re-shot with actor Fred Dalton Thompson). When Married with Children ended in 1997, O'Neill was able to appear in more serious roles, notably in several films directed by friend David Mamet and as Lt. Joe Friday in the 2003 remake of the series Dragnet before returning to television comedy in the series Modern Family. O'Neill is also a Brazilian Ju Jitsu blackbelt and had been signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers, before being let go in 1969.
