Ellen DeGeneres wants to play Ann Romney’s roommate on ABC’s sitcom “Modern Family.”

It all started when GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s wife told “Entertainment Tonight’s” Nancy O’Dell it’s her favorite show.

“Modern Family” has an ensemble cast that includes Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet, playing gay couple Mitch & Cam, who have an adopted daughter.

Romney’s husband, former Gov. of Massachusetts, has said he thinks, “marriage is between one man and one woman.” And US Weekly reported both the Romneys helped raise millions to fund California’s Proposition 8, back in 2008.
Anyone who knows the show’s creator Steve Levitan wasn’t surprised when he reacted to word Ann Romney was attaching herself to the hit show in the media, with a tweet that said, “Thrilled Ann Romney says ModFam is her favorite show,” adding, “We’ll offer her the role of officiant at Mitch & Cam’s wedding. As soon as it’s legal.”

“I’ll play her roommate,” DeGeneres offered Thursday, via Twitter.
