Pitch Perfect Star Adam Devine Joining Modern Family Cast
If you thought Modern Family had already reached its humor apex, think again.
OK! Magazine reports that Adam will be joining the show's cast for the upcoming season.
Adam, who plays slacker Adam DeMamp on Comedy Central hit Workaholics, and recently starred opposite Rebel Wilson and Anna Kendrick in Pitch Perfect, will play a nanny hired by Jay (Ed O'Neill) and Gloria (Sofia Vergara) to look after their new baby.
We've seen Adam interact with plenty of adults who act like children on Workaholics, but we'd love to see him play his brand of absurdist humor against the always composed, dapper Manny (Rico Rodriguez).
It looks as though we may just get our wish — Modern Family executive producer promises a lot of screen time between Adam and all of the members of the Dunphy household, including the little Lothario himself.
He says that Adam's nanny character is "fun and matches Gloria’s energy in the house. But he doesn’t want to just take care of the baby. He wants to sort of revive the entire household, which leads to some territorial clashes with Jay and Manny.”
We can't wait to see him — and the countless other guest stars the show has lined up — when Modern Family returns on Wednesday, September 25.
