Benjamin Bratt is "Modern" man

By Nellie Andreeva

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Benjamin Bratt will guest star on ABC's new comedy series "Modern Family," playing the ex of Sofia Vergara's character.

Jay Pritchett (Ed O'Neill) and his much younger Colombian wife, Gloria Delgado-Pritchett (Vergara), are raising Gloria's child from her previous marriage, Manny Delgado (Rico Rodriguez).

Mr. Delgado has been a prominent topic of conversation on the show, with his son idolizing him and his ex-wife often talking about his physical abilities. But the character has not yet been seen.

Shelley Long recently signed on to guest star as Jay's ex-wife, Dede Pritchett.

Bratt, who is set to appear in one episode, ended a two-season stint on the drama "The Cleaner," which A&E canceled in September.
