Ed O'Neill

Ed O'Neill was born in Ohio and was actually signed to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1969 as an outside linebacker, but was released before the regular season started. 

That turned out to be just fine for O'Neill who went on to star as the iconic Al Bundy in Married With Children for 11 years.  The actor has since been in movies and a failed television series, John from Cincinnati, but now we're lucky enough to see him playing Jay, the patriarch of Modern Family

We are possibly this actor's biggest fans.
