Broderick joins a distinguished list of "Modern Family" guest stars that also includes Greg Kinnear, Ellen Barkin, Minnie Driver, Kevin Hart, Philip Baker Hall and Broderick's "Producers" co-star, Nathan Lane.

Season 4 of the ABC comedy premieres at 9 p.m. ET Wednesday (Sept. 26). The show is vying for its third straight Emmy for best comedy at Sunday's awards.
