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].”

“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!
