NEW YORK (AP) — Jesse Tyler Ferguson might be a star now, but he remembers sweating it out in front of casting directors.
Says the "Modern Family" actor: "I've had many horrible, horrible auditions. They're tucked away. I try not to remember them."
Ferguson is revisiting those early tough days in a cameo for "Submissions Only," a new online scripted sitcom now wrapping up its second season that takes a behind-the-scenes look at the life of theater hopefuls.
Each episode begins with an audition and the one featuring Ferguson — which airs April 27 on BroadwayWorld.com — has him belting out an original song — and crashing and burning.
"It's sort of the actor's nightmare," says Ferguson. "You get in your head too much and you start second-guessing everything too much."
