Modern Family‘s New Year’s-themed episode on Jan. 9 finds Star Wars vet Billy Dee Williams (playing himself, natch) crossing paths with Ed O’Neill’s grumpy patriarch in Palm Springs, where the Pritchetts and Dunphys are spending the holidays.

As you can see via the following exclusive first look below, the pair come face-to-face during a (seemingly) friendly game of cards. Also spotted anteing up with the boys: My Big Fat Greek Wedding‘s Lainie Kazan!
