Elizabeth Banks, who played JD's baby mama on Scrubs, is coming back to the small screen.

The movie star - best known for roles in The 40-Year Old Virgin, W and Zack and Miri Make A Porno - has signed on for a recurring role on ABC's upcoming fall sitcom, Modern Family.

The gorgeous, funny actress will portray Sal, a character described by executive producer Christopher Lloyd as "the fag hag" friend of gay couple Mitchell and Cameron.

"Sal is their old running buddy," executive producer Steven Levitan said. "Mitchell and Cameron decide they need a night out on the town, so they call her up."

Look for Banks to debut on the show in October.
