David Cross joins the cast of ABC's 'Modern Family'




Arrested Development star David Cross is celebrating his recent engagement to Amber Tamblyn by getting a recurring role on ABC's Modern Family. Boy, he certainly is having a good year, isn't he?

The Hollywood Reporter says Cross will follow up a stint on Fox's Running Wilde by playing a city councilman who will repeatedly battle Julie Bowen's character Claire. The new season starts Sept. 21.

We'll have to wait and see if he will be overshadowed by new Lily actress Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, who is replacing twins Jaden and Ella Hiller as the adopted daughter of Cam and Mitchell. If she has lines this season, you can bet Cross has his work cut out for him.
