John Joseph Patrick Ryan (December 30, 1920 – January 21, 1998), best known by his stage name, Jack Lord, was an American television, film and Broadway actor and director and producer. He was known for his starring role as Steve McGarrett in the American television program Hawaii Five-O from 1968 to 1980. Lord appeared in feature films earlier in his career, among them Man of the West (1958). He was the first actor to play the recurring character Felix Leiter in Dr. No, the first James Bond film.

In Modern Family

In "The Closet Case", Jack Lord was one of Jay Pritchett and Earl Chambers's clients on the Rolodex while Jay and Earl were still business partners.

After the betrayal, Jack continued to be fond of Earl, as shown in Earl's office on a picture frame on the wall with a picture of Jack on it and a message saying "Earl - You're the Closet King! - Jack Lord"
