Modern Family Guests: Nathan Lane to Play Pepper

Modern Family Guests: Nathan Lane to Play Pepper

As confirmed by The Ausiello Files of Entertainment Weekly and TV Guide, there's another guest star popping up on Modern Family in season 2...and it's a "casting coup" making my day and making me jump up and down:

Nathan Lane! Nathan Lane!

Ahem. Though what's making me even more enthusiastic is the fact that after this one showrunner Steve Levitan says they'll be cutting down on the guest stars and focusing more on the series and its characters. Phew. Sounds good to me. Here's the lowdown on Lane:

Lane approached co-creators and executive producers Steve Levitan and Christopher Lloyd about appearing on the sitcom and was a perfect fit for [Pepper, Cameron and Mitchell's flamboyant and oft-mentioned friend,], Levitan told USA Today, who first reported the casting. His appearance is slated for early fall.

Who's excited with me on this one? Let's hear everybody's thoughts in the comments on Nathan Lane appearing on Modern Family this fall.
