Well No One Saw This Coming of the Day: Modern Family’s boneheaded-but-insightful son Luke (Nolan Gould) visited Ellen this week to announce his graduation from high school. But wait — isn’t he only 13?
Turns out, he’s a bona fide genius, with a Mensa membership and an IQ of 150:
Over the summer I did a lot of studying and I took an exam and tested at high school, so I’m hopefully going to go on and do some online community college courses.
When Gould visited Ellen in January, he revealed that he likes to discuss nuclear fusion in household microwaves, and that his allowance is a paltry $30 a week, with the rest of his income being squirreled away for college.
We’ll never watch Luke and Phil’s high-jinks the same way again.
*I’ll admit, I didn’t see this coming. And if you said you did, you’re a liar.
Good for him though. That’s awesome. And if anything, this makes me even more impressed with his acting ability. Not to say actors who play a dumb character can’t be smart, but he’s legit a genius. So I give him extra props.
