Minor TV Characters Who Deserve Their Own Spin-Off

Pepper Saltzman, Modern Family

If you think Eric Stonestreet’s Cameron Tucker is flamboyant, then you surely haven’t met his ex, Pepper Saltzman (Nathan Lane). Since Mitchell isn’t a big fan of Pepper, we don’t get to see him too often, but when we do, he makes quite an impression. Pepper’s thing is over-the-top themed brunches, from Oscar Wilde and Crazy to Seder-Day Night Fever (oh yes he did). We find Lane’s character, and his bizarre fêtes, fascinating and would love to spend a whole half-hour with him every week.
