'Modern Family': Fred Armisen and Patton Oswalt to guest in Vegas episode

Posted on

The Modern Family gang is headed to Las Vegas to film an episode with a pair of comedy aces: Patton Oswalt and Fred Armisen.

ABC has confirmed that Portlandia star/SNL alum Armisen will play Langham, a former boyfriend of Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) who is in town with his partner for their wild bachelor party. Meanwhile, Oswalt — the stand-up who has been popping up everywhere from Brooklyn Nine-Nine to The Newsroom to Justified — will assume the role of Ducky Schindler, who lords over a society of magicians that Phil (Ty Burrell) would love to join. (TVGuide.com first reported the news.)

The episode, which is being filmed this week, is slated to air sometime this spring.

This isn’t the only out-of-town trip for Modern this season. The three families will travel to Australia next month for a vacation episode that will air in late spring.
