He will play a nanny (or manny, if you prefer) for Sofia Vergara and Ed O’Neill, and we’re already loving the idea of him going toe to toe with Sofia! Will he be sweet and goofy, or a deadpan a-hole? Or just adorable with the baby?

Modern Family‘s executive producer Christopher Lloyd says the manny is “fun and matches Gloria’s energy in the house. But he doesn’t want to just take care of the baby. He wants to sort of revive the entire household, which leads to some territorial clashes with Jay and Manny.” Sounds great.
