Nathan Lane: 'Modern Family' Guest Star This Fall!

Nathan Lane will guest star on an upcoming episode of Modern Family!

The 54-year-old actor will play Pepper, an older pal of Mitchell and Cameron’s, in an episode coming this fall. Pepper, a flamboyant friend, was mentioned last season.

Executive producer Steven Levithan told USA Today that Nathan approached producers himself and that he fits the role perfectly, but that the show’s trying to cut back on “stunt casting”.

“[W]e don’t want to turn into a guest of the week,” Steven said. “The audience loves our characters and we have enough of them!”
