Gabourey Sidibe on Joining Modern Family: ‘I’d Love to Do It’

We know that Jesse Tyler Ferguson would like to see Gabourey Sidibe on Modern Family.

Movieline caught up with Sidibe:

Did she know that Ferguson was going all out to woo her for a guest stint?

“Yeah, I heard that rumor as well,” Sidibe said before she was overcome with giggles. “I actually really, really like that show. It’s the funniest show, it really is. So, I’d love to do it.”

The Precious star had only kind words for Ferguson, adding, “That guy is awesome.”

But is his quest a one-man enterprise? They asked Sidibe if Ferguson was the only rep from Modern Family she’d talked to so far. “Noooo…” she said, grinning. “I’ve talked to some other people [from the show].”

If Jesse Tyler Ferguson has his way, Gabourey Sidibe will be headed to the Pritchett/Tucker household. In a new interview with NYPost.com‘s PopWrap, the “Modern Family” star reveals that he’s actively approached the Oscar nominee about playing Lily’s nanny in an upcoming episode!

“The one person I actually have gone after — because she’d be so brilliant — is Gabourey Sidibe. I think she would be fantastic as a nanny we hire. She’s just so bubbly and sweet and a fan of the show. I think this would be a seamless fit for her,” Jesse tells PopWrap.

And that’s not all Jesse spilled — from Fred Williard’s return to an upcoming bird attack plotline — spoilers were abundant!

The Academy Award-nominated English actress, Minnie Driver, drops by to play Valerie, an old friend of Julie Bowen’s character Claire.
When Valerie pays a visit to Claire’s home, she’s not only very different than how Claire remembers her, but her presence also leaves Claire feeling less than wonderful about herself.
Elsewhere, Gloria gets a little legal help from Mitchell, while Jay has to deal with an odd experience that occurs in the locker room one day when he and Cameron meet up to play some racquetball.
