As Glee and How I Met Your Mother have handily demonstrated, a Britney Spears cameo is kind of a big deal. Modern Family producers, who are now facing down the barrel of an online fan campaign, would be smart to consider the pop star for a role.
It all started yesterday when Spears tweeted, “I know everybody is excited about the Super Bowl, but I personally can’t wait to see the next episode of Modern Family! Funniest show on TV.” Almost immediately, desirable Family star Sofia Vergara retweeted the post, then Spears’ manager followed up two hours later, asking the fans, “@BritneySpears on Modern Family? What do you guys think?”
Nothing has been confirmed yet by Spears’ camp, and ABC has not responded to EW’s request for comment. Of course, that hasn’t stopped Britney believers from blowing up Twitter with the tag “#GetBritneyOnModernFamily,” inspiring the singer to post a picture on her Facebook wall with a laugh: “You all are at it again – look what’s trending!”
So, to borrow from Leber, what do you think, PopWatchers? Would you like to see Spears on Modern Family. Perhaps as a nanny for the hilariously foul-mouthed Lily? Or Manny’s next May-September romance (Kristen Schaal was there first!)? Have you been tweeting and hash-tagging your little heart out to make this happen?
