'Modern Family' Cast Goes Back to Work
Despite an ongoing salary dispute with 20th Century Fox, the cast of “Modern Family” had their first official table read for the fourth season on Thursday.
Show creator Steve Levitan reportedly sent a letter to the cast, asking them to work things out amicably.
Bowen, Burrell, Ferguson, Stonestreet and Vergara filed a lawsuit on Tuesday, claiming their current deals violated California's Seven-Year Rule, which prohibits personal services contracts for more than seven years.
The five actors are currently taking home $60,000 per episode and all six are seeking hikes to "somewhere in the neighborhood" of $200,000 an episode.
