Ferris Bueller returns ... as guest star on 'Modern Family'




Technically, Matthew Broderick is the guest star, not Ferris, during the upcoming season of TV's Modern Family. But how cool would it be if he dropped a Ferris reference or two? Too predictable? Or just endearing? In any case...

The actor who I insist on calling Ferris Bueller (if only because I can) will play a "neurotic new friend of Phil's," says. No word on when the episode will air.

Speaking of famous (and not-so-famous) roles of Matthew Broderick, here are the names of his other '80s characters. Can you name the movie each character belongs in?

1. Michael McPhee

2. David Lightman

3. Phillipe Gaston

4. Jimmy Garrett

5. Eugene Morris Jerome

6. Alan Simon

7. Adam McMullen

8. Robert Shaw
