Modern Family Taps Sitcom Veteran To Play Cam’s Ex-Boyfriend

modern-family-cam-ex-boyfriendDid someone call a doctor? From the looks of it, ABC’s casting department did. Dr. Frasier Crane is making a house call on Modern Family.

The ABC comedy has tapped Kelsey Grammer to guest star in an upcoming episode. The 61-year-old Emmy winner will play Cam’s (Eric Stonestreet) ex-boyfriend, Keith. Given that Keith is a circus ringmaster, does this mean Cam will resurrect Fizbo? Fingers crossed.


Grammer has a long history with Modern Family creators Steven Levitan and Christopher Lloyd. Both were writers on Frasier, and also co-created Grammer’s short-lived FOX comedy, Back To You. Kelsey can also be seen in the upcoming Amazon drama, The Last Tycoon, based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s last book. It also co-stars Matt Bomer.

Excited to see Grammer on Modern Family? His episode is expected to air sometime in January. Weigh in below.
