TV Crush Of The Week: Nolan Gould From Modern Family Is A Genius

Nolan Gould


There are plenty of hot guys on TV (hello, Ed Westwick), but this week, someone much younger caught my eye – Nolan Gould, the adorable boy who plays mischievous Luke on Modern Family. Some might say that my TV crush this week might be a little inappropriate – he is only 13-years-old, of course. So let’s just say I wish he was my little brother rather than I have an actual crush on him. That sounds better.

Sure, Nolan was hysterical in both of the episodes of Modern Family that aired last night (I love this new super-scheming Luke). And, yeah, he’s funny and adorable in every episode of the show. But what really made my heart warm with joy was something Nolan did, not something Luke did: he managed to graduate high school at the age most people are just entering high school.

How? I’m not sure. Apparently, the kid is pretty much a genius. You would never know it based on his character – one of my favorite Luke moments is when he got his head stuck in a banister – but he has an IQ of 150 and he’s a member of MENSA, which is a super exclusive high IQ society. Nolan appeared on The Ellen Show earlier in the week and told Ellen how he graduated high school already: he just took a test, studied really hard over the summer and now he’s looking to take online community college courses. You know, the usual. 

Not only is Nolan’s character on Modern Family awesome, but he’s also just as cute and charming in real life, not to mention super smart. I mean, I can’t even handle him dancing to Gangnam Style. Check out his amazing personality from his appearances on The Ellen Show. I think you’ll soon be just as in love as I am.

    I don’t know about you, but I wasn’t just entering High School at 13; if I had, I would have been in therapy forever. It is a huge accomplishment for Nolan, but it is a little different when you don’t go to a public school since you’re acting during that time. A lot of homeschoolers graduate early. He’s fantastic in the show; my DISH coworker and I have been watching the show since the beginning though, and we love quoting to each other lines from the recent episode. Now I save all of the shows on my Hopper DVR, since I have a thousand hours of recording time, in HD. That way I don’t have to keep buying the DVD’s at the end of the season, and I can watch it as many times as I want.
