Who could forget Phil’s (Ty Burrell) nemesis, Gil Thorpe, right? Well, expect Rob Riggle to return as Gil – and for his father, Gunther Thorpe, to make an appearance this season on Modern Family, as spoiled by E! Online.
Seems like that Rob Riggle spinoff may actually become a reality as [Modern Family] will introduce his character Gil’s father, Gunther Thorpe, later this season, who is a milder version of his son. Expect to meet the egotistical Gunther in episode 14.
What diabolical scheme is Gil Thorpe cooking up for Phil Dunphy this time, that would warrant introducing his father?
