You may know him as Mitch from ABC’s Modern Family.  Jesse Tyler Ferguson is so much more than a redhead actor, an avid cook and cookbook collector. He is talented, funny, and a great role model for all redheads. Don’t believe me?

Here are 10 reasons to change your mind based on his inspiring social media accounts:

1. His Instagram bio makes you love him already. 

A cook, actor, and activist.
