For anyone going through 24 withdrawal, here’s some good news: Mary Lynn Rrajskub (Chloe) is going to guest star on MODERN FAMILY.
TV Guide reports Rajskub will play Mitchell’s (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) high school girlfriend, presumably the one mentioned in “The Kiss” episode–the one he never kissed in public because he’s gay. Awkward. I can’t wait to see Cameron’s (Eric Stonestreet) reaction. Will he be jealous or invite her for brunch?
