Ty Burrell is playing both father and husband to Amy Poehler. (We’ll explain in a bit.)
The Modern Family star has joined the cast of Fox’s forthcoming animated family comedy Duncanville, co-created by Poehler (Parks and Recreation) and Mike and Julie Scully (The Simpsons).
The show follows a spectacularly average 15-year-old boy named Duncan (voiced by Poehler), who has a rich fantasy life, and the people in his world. Burrell will voice the character of Jack, father of Duncan and husband to Annie (also Poehler). He is described as “a classic-rock-obsessed plumber who’s determined to be a better dad than the one he had.”
