Matt LeBlanc was supposed to play our fave character on Modern Family

Modern Family has been one of our favourite TV shows for a while now.

From the mischievous kids we grew up with to the crazy parents who taught us lessons, it's safe to say every season has been great.

However, one of our favourite characters was offered to someone else, and honestly, we can't imagine him being on the show.

Matt LeBlanc of Friends fame was supposed to take on the role of Phil Dunphy and as much as we love Matt, there's only one Phil, and that's Ty Burrell.

Matt opened up on USA Today and said that he received the script for the pilot of the show, but didn't think he was suited to the role.

"[The script] came across my desk with an offer to play Ty Burrell's role. I remember reading it thinking, this is a really good script, [but] I'm not the guy for this.

"I'd be doing the project an injustice to take this. I know what I can do – I know what I can't do. Plus, I'm having too much fun laying on the couch," he joked.

Modern Family has just been confirmed for two more season, so we're in for a lot more of Phil's jokes (and we can't wait).
