TCA Press Tour exclusive video: Rico Rodriguez from 'Modern Family' draws Manny from Antonio Banderas

August 3, 2010 | 11:06 am

If you've watched "Modern Family," chances are you're in love with lovable Manny, played by the just as lovable Rico Rodriguez.

The Times caught up with the 12-year-old actor at the Beverly Hilton on Sunday when the cast made an appearance  to chat with reporters.

He talked to us about the audition process, how long he's wanted to be an actor, what he did on his birthday (which was Saturday), where he draws his inspiration for his role, his favorite Manny line and how he feels about the show's 14 Emmy nominations.

Over here at Show Tracker, we are demanding that the academy reconsider and nominate the funniest kid on television.
