Modern Family co-creator Steve Levitan mentioned to TVLine that Manny (Rico Rodriguez) is in love…again? Yep, again. Only this time, it involves bar mitzvah crashing.
“He and Luke go to a hotel together with Claire and Alex, [who] is in an academic decathlon, and… Manny meets a girl in the lobby… But then she sort of disappears after having mentioned she’s there for a Bar Mitzvah.”
The tricky part for Manny is, there’s more than one bar mitzvah going on in the hotel – more like three or four. Naturally, the title of the episode is “Bar Mitzvah Crashers”. Here’s hoping Luke tags along with Manny again because that Modern Family combo always equals *win*.
On the casting front, according to Ausiello, the show is on the lookout for Pam – “a fortyish, opinionated, plus-sized lesbian — in other words, a younger Rosie O’Donnell” and Jorie – “a new friend of Haley’s who, from the back, is a dead ringer for her mother.” TVLine and TV Guide are both betting Phil’s going to be doing some awkward mixing up on this one.
