EMMY AWARDS CEREMONY FEATURES K-STATE NOMINEE

MANHATTAN -- K-Staters have a Wildcat to root for at the Emmy Awards, Sunday, Aug. 29.

Eric Stonestreet, a 1996 K-State alum, is nominated for best supporting actor in a comedy for his role as Cameron Tucker in ABC's "Modern Family."

Stonestreet, a Kansas City native, stays in touch with faculty and students in the K-State theater program, according to Marci Maullar, managing director of K-State Theater. Maullar said Stonestreet dropped by Manhattan earlier this summer on his way back to Los Angeles. He had lunch with Mauller; Charlotte MacFarland, associate professor of theater; and some theater students.

Before landing a role in "Modern Family," which premiered in September 2009, Stonestreet appeared on several TV shows, including "CSI," "Nip/Tuck," "Dharma & Greg," "Macolm in the Middle," "Party of Five," "ER," "Pushing Daisies" and more.

Stonestreet earned a degree in sociology from K-State, but Maullar said he spent a lot of time with the theater program during his last two years of school. He had leading roles in K-State Theater's productions of "All My Sons" and "Twelfth Night."
