Modern Family

Sarah Hyland Dishes on Playing the Head Cheerleader in Chris Colfer’s Movie

Excellent news for all fans of Glee and Modern Family (and really, who isn’t at this point?): Sarah Hyland (Haley Dunphy) has joined the cast of Chris Colfer’s (Kurt Hummel on Glee) first film: Struck by Lightning, which he also wrote and directed.

"I play Claire, the head cheerleader," Sarah told E!. "She does not like Chris' character very much...But I'm playing a cheerleader. What else are cheerleaders? They're mean!"

It sounds like Sarah’s character in the movie isn’t all that different from her character on Modern Family — a little bitchy, the “hot girl” in high school, and dismissive of the unpopular kids.

But we’re sure filming Chris’ movie is way more fun: Sarah’s boyfriend,, Matt Prokop, plays a stoner who will “roll a joint or two,” he says, in the film. We can’t wait!

Watch an all-new Modern Family on Wednesday, February 8 at 9pm ET/PT on ABC.
