Workaholics and Pitch Perfect scene-stealer Adam DeVine will have a recurring guest role on Modern Family this season, EW has confirmed. DeVine will play nanny to Manny and new baby Joe in several episodes of the fifth season of the ABC comedy.
TV Guide quotes executive producer Christopher Lloyd, who shares that the character is a nice guy from the Midwest who 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 [Ed O’Neill] and Manny [Rico Rodriguez].”
Modern Family will premiere Wednesday, Sept. 25.
