  • I smell an Emmy nomination for Jane – since she never got the change to get her own for 30 Rock.
    Can’t wait for Jesse Eisenberg, too!

  • Let the Dunphy who needs therapy be one of the kids. Any of three would be a potentially hilarious scenario.

    • My first thought was that I bet J.B. Hickey and the actor who plays Luke would have pretty hilarious chemistry.

  • I think the headline should state both Jane and Jesse Eisenberg will be appearing in modern family. Jesse appearing in any tv show is rare occasion.The last time i heard him was in The Newsroom and that was a voiceover.

  • In my head, I suspect that this is all just another Jenna scheme to go around f-ing with everyone who ever stole an Emmy from her, starting with Julie Bowen.

  • Great news. Looking forward to seeing all three guest stars. BTW, Modern Family writer/producer Jeffrey Richman is John Benjamin Hickey’s partner.

  • There’s nothing better than a verbal cat fight. My loyalties are torn on who I want to triumph!

  • I don’t normally watch Modern Family, but I’ll watch anything Jane Krakowski is in.. most underrated performer on TV. Have watched her since she was a soap opera kid, loved her in Ally McBeal and she was the best thing about 30-Rock.
