Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who plays Mitchell Pritchett on the TV series Modern Family, revealed he had skin cancer removed from his face in a lighthearted Instagram post. He thanked his medical team, and made sure to jokingly tease the makeup artists who work on the show, because they're the ones who will have to conceal it for him:

Thank you to Dr. Bennett & his entire team for taking the cancer out of my face. Good luck hiding the stitches tomorrow @modernfamily_makeuphair!#youwannaapieceofme #phantommask#spf75

Good luck to Jesse on a swift recovery, and to the makeup team on hiding those stitches. Now he can get back to earning that giant pile of cash that only comes from a successful sitcom.
