Nathan Lane to Guest on 'Modern Family'

The Broadway funnyman will appear in an upcoming episode of the ABC comedy

Just when you think Modern Family can't get any funnier, hilarious Broadway legend Nathan Lane is gearing up to be a guest star!

According to, Lane has been snatched up to play Cam (Eric Stonestreet) and Mitchell's (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) "flamboyant friend Pepper." The Tony winner's appearance is scheduled for an episode early in the hit show's second season.

The Birdcage star has had plenty of success with guesting on TV comedies, picking up Emmy nods for past appearances on both Frasier and Mad About You. And if the freshman season of Modern Family is any indication of how good the show can be, Lane has a good shot of adding to his nominations. The sitcom is up for the outstanding comedy series Emmy later this month, with five of the show's stars and one of its guest stars up for individual acting recognition.
