Eric Stonestreet Introduces Modern Family Fans to Cam's Father

by at . Comments

Our favorite Modern Family is about to get even bigger.

And a bit more country.

Eric Stonestreet posted a photo today of him and Barry Corbin at a table read for the ABC sitcom, confirming that the veteran actor (The Closer, One Tree Hill) will guest star later this season as Cam's father, Merle.

What will bring Merle Tucker to town in May? We don't know. But we bet there will be a lot of tractor talk between father and son.
