MODERN Family actor Nolan Gould dubbed himself “tragic Mike” after writhing around in his first pole dancing class.
Known to fans of the sitcom as super-cute Luke Dunphy, the youngest sibling of the Dunphy clan, the New Yorker proved all grown up in his recent lesson.
Nolan, 22, captured the action on his Instagram, with a video showing him wearing gray shorts and a matching top and holding the pole with one hand.
He swung himself around before holding the pole with both hands for some hip circles, before flipping himself around to slide down for a deep squat.
The clip wrapped with the TV star wrapping both feet around the bar for an impressive twirl.
In his caption, the ABC star wrote: “Tragic Mike. Might delete this immediately but had to share the results of my first pole dancing class.
“Always wanted to try it. Thanks @alyssadventures for an amazing class and my supportive friends for helping make it happen.
“I am uncoordinated and inflexible as hell. My body is basically made of Lego bricks.”
Previously, Nolan left fans stunned as he revealed his ripped abs in a topless snap.
He stepped up his fitness game during the pandemic, and showed off his impressive new physique in a recent photoshoot.
Nolan shared that he’s “changed his look and mindset” during the quarantine, and is ready to change directions in his career.
Co-stars from Modern Family were floored at the celebrity’s transformation, as they took to the comments to express their surprise.
Jesse Tyler Ferguson asked: “What have you done with Nolan?!” while Sarah Hyland gasped: “WHAT IS HAPPENING.”
Nolan was just 11 years old when the show started in 2009, meaning fans have seen him grow up on the show.
His earlier seasons are perhaps his finest – as the cute little Luke who always gets himself into mischief and is best friends with his dad, Phil.
After Modern Family wrapped in 2020, Nolan finished shooting a new film called Camp.
