Modern Family has booked Aisha Tyler for a guest role in the ABC Comedy. Tyler, who is a panelist on the “Talk” and actress on “Archer” will be seen guest starring on Modern Family in a winter episode of the current season and she will be portraying the role of Mitchell’s (played by Jesse Tyler Ferguson) old friend.
Personally, I’m a big fan of Tyler since her role as Charlie, Ross Geller’s paleontologist girlfriend on the evergreen sitcom Friends. She is also popularly known for her vocal work on Archer, an FX show, which is coming back for another season on January 13.
Tyler will be seen guest-starring on the 16th episode “Spring-a-Ding-Fling of Modern Family Season 5, where she will be playing the role of Wendy who is Mitchell’s old classmate during law school. In the episode their old friendship takes a very interesting turn when Wendy becomes his boss and he has to report to her.
Along with Aisha Tyler, the other guest stars of the season 5 of Modern Family include Jane Krakiwski, Nathan Lane, Adam DeVine, Jesse Eisenberg and John Benjamin Hickey. Besides The Talk and Archer, Tyler also hosts Whose Line Is It Anyway on CW, which just got renewed for another season last year. She has also landed up on a role in an HBO Pilot, Open by Ryan Murphy. Tyler’s book Self-Inflicted Wounds: Heartwarming Tales of Epic Humiliation got published last summer.
