Celia Weston to Appear on MODERN FAMILY

We’re going to meet Cameron’s mom on MODERN FAMILY. TV Guide reports that character actress Celia Weston has won the role and will appear this fall.

Cam’s mother, who is named Barb Tucker, was originally set to appear in a Thanksgiving-themed episode with Cam’s father, but the dad role has since been written out and Barb will now be seen solo in a non-holiday installment.

Apparently Weston, who has a recurring role on TNT’s Memphis Beat, beat out Kathy Bates, Dianne Wiest, and Delta Burke for the role. I think she’s a terrific choice. Do you agree or should one of the other talented actresses have gotten this potentially hilarious role?

The second season of Modern Family premieres on ABC Wednesday, September 22 at 9pm/8 central. You can find all the fall premiere dates and times here.
