Matthew Broderick to Guest on Modern Family

Which beloved actor will show up on Modern Family this season? Anyone? Anyone?


Matthew Broderick, Ferris Bueller himself, will guest-star on the ABC comedy’s Season 4 as a neurotic new friend of Phil’s, the network announced Friday. No word yet on when his episode will air.

Aside from the occasional guest gig (such as playing 30 Rock’s Cooter Burger) and a Ferris–tastic Honda ad at this year’s Super Bowl, most of Broderick’s recent work has taken place away from the small screen. He’s currently starring in Nice Work If You Can Get It on Broadway.

Modern Family returns to ABC at 9/8c on Wednesday, Sept. 26, following The Middle‘s hour-long season opener.
