This former child star looks unrecognizable in a new shirtless snap shared to his Instagram on Sunday.
Though his character was known for not being very bright, in real life this actor has a high 150 IQ, allowing him to be a part of Mensa International, the largest IQ society of the world.
Though fans may remember him as an adorably goofy young teen, the entertainer looked unrecognizable as he showed of his buff form and six-pack abs while enjoying a hike in the new photo.
Can you guess who this actor is?
That’s right, it’s Nolan Gould who played Luke Dunphy on hit show Modern Family.
Nolan starred alongside Ariel Winters and Sarah Hyland on Modern Family from 2009 to 2020 as the children of Claire and Phil Dunphy (Julie Bowen and Ty Burrell).
The hit single-camera comedy ran for 11 seasons and documented the hilarious hijinks of an extended family, which included stars Sofía Vergara, Ed O’Neill, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet and Rico Rodriguez.
He also played a college student with an unknown illness on Grey’s Anatomy alongside Ellen Pompeo.
In 2011 he played Sam in Friends with Benefits, starring Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake.
In February of 2021 Gould showed off impressive body transformation as he credited fitness for giving him a ‘reason to get up and stay motivated.’
Gould unveiled his transformation after embracing a more healthy diet and cutting alcohol amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
‘I’ve been working out an hour and a half everyday with my friend Michael who is a personal trainer. We have a really cool socially-distant setup that has allowed me to get fit while also being safe,’ he told People at the time.
‘It’s been nice. Especially being unemployed in quarantine, having a reason to get up and stay motivated. It’s been something that’s been very healthy and positive for me in quarantine. It’s really changed my outlook,’ he explained.
Additionally, he’s replaced ‘teenage boy/bachelor’ meals, like eating ‘four pizzas at once’ and drinking soda, with lean protein and vegetables.
‘I’m eating so much healthier, even though there’s less of it,’ he noted. ‘Nourishing the mind, body, all that. And actually, for me the biggest thing was cutting out alcohol, for me that’s actually been very nice.’
