Modern Family – Cameron Tucker is Mitchell’s partner and the adoptive father of Vietnamese girl Lily. Mitchell is more uptight in his ways whereas Cameron’s carefree and loud personality acts as the perfect compliment. “I’m sort of like Costco. I’m big, I’m not fancy, and I care you not to like me.” An optimistic dreamer, Cam will prove to you that anything is possible. He gets along well with everyone and will very easily warm to strangers, something that him and Mitchell often have discrepancies over.
Portrayed by Eric Stonestreet.
