Matt Dillon to Appear on MODERN FAMILY

Matt Dillon

We’re going to get a glimpse into Claire Dunphy’s (Julie Bowen) past on MODERN FAMILY. Entertainment Weekly reports that Matt Dillon will guest star in an episode of the ABC comedy as her ex-boyfriend.

Running into her old flame will be more than a little uncomfortable for Claire since he is also her mother’s (the returning Shelley Long) current flame. Awkward. Also–potentially hilarious.

This is a rare television appearance for Dillon, who rose to fame as a teen star in movies like Tex and The Outsiders. As an adult, he has starred in such films as There’s Something about Mary, Crash, and Old Dogs.

Modern Family airs on ABC Wednesdays at 9pm eastern/8pm central.
