'Modern Family' snags Matthew Broderick for guest role
Matthew Broderick is set to appear in an episode to air later in the fall, ABC says. The Tony Award winner will play a "neurotic" guy who becomes friends with Phil ( Ty Burrell). No other details on the role, or an airdate for Broderick's episode, are available at the moment.
Broderick joins a distinguished list of "Modern Family" guest stars that also includes Greg Kinnear, Ellen Barkin, Minnie Driver, Kevin Hart, Philip Baker Hall and Broderick's "Producers" co-star, Nathan Lane.
Season 4 of the ABC comedy premieres at 9 p.m. ET Wednesday (Sept. 26). The show is vying for its third straight Emmy for best comedy at Sunday's awards.
