‘Modern Family’ Season 4 Casts ‘Bridesmaids’ Star

Modern Family Season 4 Wendi McLendon Covey
ABC / Universal

With all the drama surrounding ‘Modern Family‘ season 4 and its multiple cast re-negotiations, its easy to forget that we’re going to see plenty of faces outside of the Dunphys, Pritchetts and Delgados.  And for a series that has boasted such impressive talent as Greg Kinnear and Edward Norton, it’s good to see ‘Modern Family’ dipping into one of our favorite comedic wells by casting ‘Reno 911!’ and ‘Bridesmaids‘ star Wendi Mclendon-Covey!

According to Entertainment Weekly, ‘Modern Family’ season 4 has made an arresting choice for its latest guest star.  Former ‘Reno 911!’ and ‘Bridesmaids’ star Wendi McLendon-Covey will appear beginning with the season’s third episode, as one-half of a lesbian couple whose son gets into a fight with Lily on the girl’s day of kindergarten.  McLendon-Covey’s partner will be played by former ‘Saturday Night Live‘ star Michaela Watkins.

Speaking of her recent addition to the cast, McLendon-Covey said:

I can’t wait. I go in and film it tomorrow and Wednesday and Thursday. It’ll be pretty fun. I usually play someone who hates her kids — this time I love my child!

‘Modern Family’ will return on September 26, thankfully free of all the recent drama that saw both the adults and children of the cast negotiating for pay raises, so much so that it delayed the first table reading of the year a number of days.  McLendon-Covey isn’t the only ‘Reno 911!’ alum with steady work these days either, as Niecy Nash will guest on the upcoming season of ‘New Girl,’ while Thomas Lennon will put in an appearance on ‘How I Met Your Mother.’

What say you?  Are you excited to see the former ‘Reno 911!’ star join the cast of ‘Modern Family’ season 4?  What other funny faces would you like to see with the Dunphy clan?
