After the successful casting of Fred Willard as Frank, Phil Dunphy’s dad (or as I refer to him, “Daddy Dunphy”), fans of Willard and Modern Family alike will be happy to know that he’s coming back for more fun in season 2:

“They said that I should be back, because they asked me for my photo to put in the hallway there on the set — that I’m part of the family now!” Willard tells TV Guide Magazine.

And apparently,we owe this father-son match made in heaven to Phil’s actor, Ty Burrell. Check out the rest of the article on TV Guide for all the scoop.
