The Modern Family Star We Never Got To See In More Seasons Of AHS

The actor in question is Eric Stonestreet, whose character, Cameron Tucker, features a big personality on his regular show, “Modern Family,” which aired for 11 seasons. When he was tapped for the “Piggy Piggy” episode of “AHS” in 2011, it was reported in the trades, and Stonestreet gave interviews on how his “AHS” character, Derek, was different from Cam. “Cam is lighthearted, fun, passionate, excitable, exciting and confident,” Stonestreet told The Hollywood Reporter. “Derek is meek, timid, scared, unsure of himself, embarrassed and ashamed of where his life is. He has this unreasonable fear of children’s ghost stories that has crippled him. He has no social life, while Cam’s social life is obviously thriving and he has tons of friends. Derek is sort of alone and this is a last step effort to get control back of his life.”

Derek turns to Ben (Dylan McDermott) for help in overcoming his fear of urban legends during the “Murder House” season, specifically the Piggy Man. Ben has him saying the words that are supposed to call the Piggy Man into his mirror. In one effort, overseen by the psychiatrist, he accidentally gets a visit from Gladys (Celia Finkelstein), who thinks he’s calling her because she is overweight. And then, in his own bathroom, he uses the pig call again only to have a robber, hiding in his bathtub, think Derek knows he’s there. The robber shoots him in the head. “The sad thing is Derek is just a regular guy who has this crippling unreasonable fear,” Stonestreet said, noting that this makes Derek very different from the fearless Cam. “I think that’s something that’s relatable when we all are smart enough to know better, yet we can’t get around it.”
