Modern Family child star graduates high school at 13

Nolan Gould might be best known for playing the dim-witted Luke Dunphy on Modern Family, but he's actually a high-school graduate.

Yes, he's graduated high school. At the age of 13.

Nolan broke the news during a recent appearance on Ellen.

"Over the summer, I did a lot of studying. I took an exam and tested at high school, so I'm hopefully going to go on and do some online community college courses," he said.

If that didn't make you feel bad enough about yourself, Nolan has an IQ of 150 and a Mensa membership.

We don't think we'll ever be able to look at Luke Dunphy the same way ever again... Oh well, there's always these other TV numbskulls.
