The “Talk” panelist and “Archer” actress heads to the ABC comedy in a winter episode, where she’ll play an old friend of Mitchell’s (Jesse Tyler Ferguson).
Aisha Tyler is taking her moonlighting to Modern Family. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that The Talk panelist is set to appear on the ABC comedy during the current fifth season.
Tyler, whose vocal work is also currently showcased on FX’s Archer (back Jan. 13), will play Wendy in the 16th episode, “Spring-A-Ding-Fling.” Wendy is an old law school classmate of Mitchell’s (Jesse Tyler Ferguson), but their friendship takes an interesting turn when she becomes his boss. Mitchell reports to Wendy at the legal aid society she founded.
The two will shoot their scenes together later this week.
