We have a couple weeks to wait before Modern Family returns with new episodes. While the winter hiatus ensues, ABC has offered up a few promotional videos to remind us that not only is Modern Family on the way, but so is Gloria's baby! We also have a look at the next new episode, which features a special guest star that Star Wars fans will appreciate.
First, here are the January promos, which don't tell us exactly when Gloria and Jay's baby is coming, but do hint that it will be at some point in January and that there will be a lot of screaming involved…
Needless to say, the arrival of the newest Pritchett will be quite the event. In the meantime, here's the episode description for "New Years Eve," which will feature an appearance by Billy Dee Williams, who, from the sound of it, will be playing himself in the episode as Jay and the family (or the adults, anyway) head off to Palm Springs for a New Years Eve celebration.
"New Year's Eve" - Jay is so excited, having planned for the whole family to celebrate New Year's together at this great hotel in Palm Springs. However, when the hotel turns out to be less than stellar, everyone starts to branch off to do their own thing, leaving Jay dejected -- that is until he runs into the one and only Billy Dee Williams! Meanwhile back at home, Haley and Alex watch over the kids, which proves to be quite a challenge, on "Modern Family," WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 9 (9:00-9:31 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
In addition to Williams (known to Star Wars fans as Lando Calrissian) and Ed O'Neill, it also looks like the very funny Lainie Kazan will be making an appearance in the episode. Her recent credits include Desperate Housewives and Good Vibes, though people might remember her better from My Big Fat Greek Wedding. She was also Andrea's grandmother in an episode of Beverly Hills, 90210.
