Actor Benjamin Bratt will be back on ABC’s “Modern Family” this upcoming season where he will play his role of Manny’s (Rico Rodriguez) father. Executive Producer Christopher Lloyd spilled some of the details about Benjamin’s upcoming plot line to EW.com, saying:
Jay [Ed O’Neill] feels possessive of Manny for the first time and wonders what he’s allowed to do and what he isn’t as his stepdad. It becomes kind of a competition between Jay and Javier [Benjamin Bratt] for Manny.
We can’t wait to see that! Plus, can we just say that we LOVED Benjamin as Eric Matthews in “Miss Congeniality” with Sandra Bullock!
