Who is Phil Dunphy?
Phil is a real estate agent who lives in California with his family. He has been married to Claire Dunphy for seventeen years and has three children, Haley, Alex, and Luke. He sees himself as the "cool dad," though his kids rarely agree. He dotes on his wife Claire and constantly tries to find ways to bond with his three kids. He has a very juvenile attitude, and is referred to by Claire as the "kid [she's] married to." He uses a parenting method that he calls "peerenting", which is a combination of talking like a peer but acting like a parent. He is very confident in his work, once saying "I could sell a fur coat to an Eskimo." He at times shows a sort of crush-like affection for Gloria, however he says "[He] would never stray from Claire." In college he was a cheerleader at the University of Oregon and his birthday is April 3..
Phil suffers from coulrophobia, intense fear of clowns. This was revealed in the episode Fizbo, when Cameron came to Luke's birthday party dressed as a clown. He has addressed this and says that his mother thinks the fear originated from him finding a dead clown in the woods one day when he was little. His laid-back way of handling situations often gets him into chain reaction situations in which the problem grows after every event. He often has to lie to avoid getting into trouble with Claire, though she always ends up finding out in the end, often leaving Phil in embarrassment.
Tyler Gerald "Ty" Burrell (born August 22, 1967) is an American actor and comedian. He currently stars in the ABC comedy Modern Family as Phil Dunphy.

"I am brave. Roller coasters? Love 'em. Scary movies? I've seen Ghostbusters like 7 times. I regularly drive through neighborhoods that have only recently been gentrified. So yeah I am pretty much not afraid of anything."
"In nature, fathers are known to eat their young. Is it because they're delicious? No. It's because they want to give their female... bear, giraffe, what have you... the honeymoon they never had. Just to be clear: I don't condone eating your kids, although I sure as heck know why giraffes do it."
Future thread titles: "Please don't fix that step."
