Glee might be doing away with the guest stars for a season, but Modern Family says they’re not going out of style just yet. Starting off with David Cross (Arrested Development) in the recurring role of Councilman Duane Bailey (he’ll be in episode 5), these awesome actors and actresses will each be making their own unique appearance in season 3:

  • Jennifer Tilly (Monsters, Inc, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation) as the “vivacious brunette vixen” wife of Jay’s friend, Shorty (Chazz Palminteri) – a.k.a. the guy Mitch thought was gay-but-wasn’t back in season 1. Things should definitely prove interesting now that we have a wife out on the table (hopefully not literally, but with Modern Family you never do know).
  • Leslie Mann (Knocked Up, 17 Again) will be flirting with Cameron, but not exactly against his will. Mitch and Cam make a bet that Cameron can’t play it straight, so Cameron sets out to prove Mitchell wrong. Leslie Mann is set to appear in episode 8 airing in November.
  • Kevin Hart (Little Fockers, Soul Plane) is about to stir things up with Ty Burrell’s Phil Dunphy I’m sure, since he’ll be playing Andre, a physician neighbor living next to the Dunphys.
  • Gilles Marini (Brothers and Sisters, Dancing with the Stars) is all set to fudge up Cameron’s “gaydar” this time as Julian, a friend of a friend of a friend who Mitch and Cam swear is gay – until he’s alone with Claire during a “fun night out”.

Who are you most looking forward to seeing in a season 3 episode of Modern Family?
