Get ready for Jay vs. Javier: Round II!
Modern Family executive producer Christopher Lloyd confirmed that Benjamin Bratt will reprise his role as Javier, Gloria’s ex-husband and Manny’s dead-beat dad, during Season 3.
“[He] feels possessive of Manny for the first time and wonders what he’s allowed to do and what he isn’t as his stepdad,” Lloyd dished to Entertainment Weekly. “The backdrop [of the racetrack] becomes kind of a competition between Jay and Javier for Manny.”
