It feels like just yesterday Cameron Tucker’s mum was introduced to the Modern Family, but what about Cam’s dad? TV Line has released a new season 3 casting spoiler for the May sweeps episode, and yep, we can expect to finally meet Cam’s dad, Merle:

The role being cast is described “a solid, masculine, gruff Midwestern guy” in his 60s.

Any particular reason you can see Cam’s father coming into town? Or maybe…Cam takes Mitchell to the old family farm (I’d pay to see that). Hit the comments with your guesses for the episode and who you think should be cast as Merle.
