No more scares for Eric Stonestreet!

Ellen DeGeneres is known for trying to scare her talk show guests, but the Modern Family star was not going to put up with it any longer.

Despite Ellen's initial promise that she hadn't lined up a costumed prankster to frighten him - it was all a ruse as he positioned himself behind Ellen for the scarer to appear.

The scarer himself got quite the fright when Eric Stonestreet tackled him to the ground, wrestling him until he tapped out of his grasp.

"Now who's laughing, punk?" he shouted.

Definitely Ellen DeGeneres, who took great joy in watching everything unfold!
