Jesse Tyler Ferguson must not be too concerned about anyone discovering his recent purchase of a home in Los Feliz for $4.55 million. The “Modern Family” actor has already invited the neighbors over to get acquainted and show off the Spanish Colonial Revival house. Built in 1928, the renovated home features a two-story entry, 25-foot cathedral ceilings in the living room, four bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and nearly 5,000 square feet of living space. Period details include stained glass, wall nooks, interior arches and wrought-iron work.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson took the first step toward a "Modern Family" of his own Saturday night in New York, marrying lawyer Justin Mikita. "Top of the world. Top of the cake!" Ferguson, 37, tweeted Monday morning, including a photo of what we assume was his adorably customized cake topper.  Playwright-screenwriter Tony Kushner, the man behind "Angels in America" and "Lincoln," officiated, Ferguson's rep told People in confirming the wedding. The two got engaged in September after dating for about two years.

A cauliflower head named Ray Mercer recently got busted for allegedly offering a bribe to another alleged boxer to "take a dive." This became a major scandal in boxing, a sport that refreshingly had gone without a major scandal for many, many hours. I have been to a number of fights where I actually wished one of the boxers would take a dive. Then I would have been spared having to watch the rest of the fight.

Riddick Bowe will defend his International Boxing Federation and World Boxing Assn. heavyweight championships against Jesse Ferguson tonight, a match more indicative of the fragmented state of pro boxing than it is of Bowe's fitness as a champion. Ferguson will arrive as the challenger in RFK Stadium solely on the strength of an upset of Ray Mercer on the undercard of Bowe's last defense, against Michael Dokes on Feb. 6.

Riddick Bowe has defended his world heavyweight boxing championship twice, and his elapsed fighting time as champion has yet to reach six minutes. Saturday night at RFK Stadium, Bowe stopped Jesse Ferguson 17 seconds into the second round. In February, in his first defense, Bowe stopped Michael Dokes in 2 minutes 19 seconds. Bowe, in improving to 34-0, still hasn't been tested as a champion. Ferguson (19-10) fought like the 42-1 underdog he was.

Mel Brooks brimmed with brio recently, chatting up next weekend's three-day mounting of "The Producers" at the Hollywood Bowl. Firing quips and shtick in lethal arcs at most questions, Brooks pivoted to incisiveness when talking about casting Jesse Tyler Ferguson in the musical's co-lead role of nervous/nerdy accountant Leo Bloom. "Now Jesse, he has a lot of Leo in him, I think," said Brooks. "Jesse is fragile. He is a good trembler. You get from him that life is a big struggle. " Ferguson is an established TV presence, a comic mainstay and two-time Emmy nominee playing a gay parent on"Modern Family.

Emmy-nominated actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson ("Modern Family") and partner Justin Mikita have just added a new neck knot to their wildly successful month-and-a-half-old line of jaunty bow ties -- a formal style suitable for wedding wear. The couple launched their Tie the Knot line, a collaboration with Chicago-based neckwear and accessories e-tailer the Tie Bar, on Nov. 15, with all proceeds going to fund various groups fighting for marriage equality. The inaugural collection of 20 limited-edition ties, which benefited the group Human Rights Campaign sold out by early December.

Admit it, at 45 years old, the Advocate looks good. Over those years, the LGBT magazine has seen the same challenges as any other print publication but has forged ahead with its watchdog duties in human rights as well as being a pop culture compass. The glossy will celebrate the big 4-5 at the Beverly Hilton on Thursday, welcoming a host of celebs and activists, as well as fashion and social types. Not to mention inductees to the Heroes Hall of Fame, a list of notables that includes Ellen DeGeneres, Rosie O'Donnell, Cynthia Nixon and Jake Gyllenhaal.
