Following up on the news that Cam’s (Eric Stonestreet) sister will be making an appearance in episode 4 of Modern Family‘s season 5, TVLine has announced that Dana Powell (Arrested Development, The Office) has been cast in the role.

Modern Family is introducing Cam’s sister in Season 5 — and she comes in the form of a Suburgatory alumna.

Dana Powell — who has portrayed a busybody Chatswinite on the quirky ABC sitcom — has been cast as the aforementioned Family member’s sassy sibling, TVLine has learned exclusively.

During a chat with TVLine last month, executive producer Christopher Lloyd revealed that the series was looking for someone “colorful and believable” to portray Cam’s Midwesterner sis, noting that the pair will share “a little bit of a competitive relationship.”

What do you think of Dana being cast as Cam’s sister this season on Modern Family?
