Meanwhile, Willard's attorney, Paul Takakjian, has said the actor "did nothing in any violation of any law" when he was allegedly caught with his pants down in an adult movie theater, TMZ reports. With his wife by his side, Willard himself told TMZ the arrest was a "big misunderstanding" and "It didn't happen."

The actor, who has been identified as 72 years old and 78 years old in various reports, is best known for his roles on "Modern Family," "Everybody Loves Raymond" and movies like "Best in Show" and "Anchorman." His upcoming movie has the unfortunate title of "The Yank."
