Ty Burell And Julie Bowen To Host The 2012 Billboard Music Awards
Phil and Claire Dunphy are one of the best married couples on television right now. Those who enjoy Julie Bowen and Ty Burrell's on-screen chemistry during ABC's comedy series Modern Family, will appreciate the news that the duo are set to join up on screen again next month, this time for a hosting gig.
Entertainment Weekly shared the news, stating that Burrell and Bowen are going to host the 2012 Billboard Music Awards. The ceremony, which celebrates the music chart-toppers of the year, is set to take place on May 20. As ABC is the network on which the event will air, it's no surprise that two big names from one of ABC's biggest shows would be set to host. Whether they prove to be as funny and entertaining as hosts as they are in their characters on Modern Family remains to be seen, but it's likely that plenty of fans of the comedy series will appreciate the familiar faces on stage during the ceremony.
Both Burrell and Bowen have won Emmy Awards for their characters Phil and Claire, a married couple on Modern Family. What works so well about the couple in the comedy series is their chemistry and the way their personalities clash and compliment one another. It'll be interesting to see if we get some of that dynamic from the duo when the host the Billboard Music Awards. As EW notes, Community's Ken Jeong hosted the awards last year. It's probably too soon to call it, but perhaps a pattern of TV stars hosting the Billboard Awards is developing here.
