Eric Stonestreet is going to have to start looking over his shoulder even more after another scare during his visit to The Ellen Show. The surprising part was, Stonestreet was promised he wouldn't get scared. So much for that.

DeGeneres said she was backstage playing ping pong so that Stonestreet wouldn't suspect anything. However, the show hid a clown inside a box in his dressing room.

What happened was pure hilarious fun. After the scare DeGeneres poked her head into the room and laughed about it. Meanwhile, Stonestreet lived so close that he drove up to the show in a golf cart.

At the moment no one on the Modern Family show has a contract but DeGeneres said she really hopes the show comes back.

You can check out the hilarious video of The Ellen Show scaring the heck out of Stonestreet in the video below.
