Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet has never hidden his affection for his hometown of Kansas City. So when he got his co-stars Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Julie Bowen to appear at a fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Kansas City's Kids Night Out, he surely wanted to show them the best the city has to offer. Unfortunately, he spent an hour showing his pals the inside of a Crown Center Sheraton elevator.
Ferguson related the trio's adventure in real time on Twitter. The Star says 15 people were in the elevator when it stalled at the third floor. KCFD firefighters freed them after an hour, and afterward, the actors made their appearances just a bit late. As the ordeal wrapped up, Ferguson seemed nonplussed. He tweeted, "Finally made it out of the stuck elevator at the one hour mark. At least the firemen in K.C. are cute."
