When an attractive blonde woman asked Modern Family and Married… with Children star Ed O’Neil for a photograph at the airport, he said yes. It was something he was pretty used to, after all. The woman posed with him excitedly, got her photograph taken and went on her way. Ed O’Neil thought nothing more about it until the woman posted the shot on her Twitter account. Then he realized what had happened to him. And it was pretty damn funny.
Ed O’Neill shot to fame in 1987 with the TV series Married… with Children. He played the main character, Al Bundy, a one-time high school football star, husband and shoe salesman. The show was a big success, and both O’Neill and his character went down in American sitcom history. Married eventually ended in 1997 having run for 11 seasons.
But Ed O’Neill wasn’t a one-hit wonder. During and after Married… with Children he appeared in plenty of high-profile movies and TV shows. He showed up in cult hit Wayne’s World, played Relish the Troll King in The 10th Kingdom and was later cast as recurring character Eric Baker on The West Wing. He also did plenty of commercials. Indeed, he was rarely off screens.
