E! Online announces that Modern Family will be taking in three guest stars, and all in one episode!

In episode 11 12 of season 5, “Under Pressure”, Jane Krakowski (30 Rock), Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network, Now You See Me), and John Benjamin Hickey (The Big C, Pitch Perfect) will all be making a guest appearance – but as what kind of characters?

  • 30 Rock alum, SAG Award winner and she of general fabulousness Jane Krakowski will play Dr. Donna, a mean girl mommy at Manny’s (Rico Rodriguez) school. She becomes a nemesis for Gloria (Sofia Vegara), and we know we’re not alone when we say we can’t wait for their showdowns.
  • Academy-Award nominee Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network, Now You See Me), will appear as Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cam’s (Eric Stonestreet) neighbor Asher, who is overly ecologically aware and will probably call those two out on anything and everything they do to hurt the environment.
  • Finally, Tony Award-winning and Emmy-nominated John Benjamin Hickey (The Big C, Pitch Perfect) is set to play a therapist to one of the Dunphy members. Any ideas who will be getting in some couch time? Our money is on Claire (Julie Bowen).

Are you excited to see any one of the three guest stars for “Under Pressure” in particular?

  • Shane Olga Ocampo

    Jesse Eisenberg! :))

  • Tanya Marcy

    That was my reaction too, Shane! Hahaha. :) Did you happen to see him in Now You See Me? I saw The Social Network way back, but I was pretty impressed with his acting skills in that one.
