'Modern Family' Hires Benjamin Bratt as Gloria's Ex


Benjamin Bratt


Taking shape after being picked up for full season, the new comedy series will reveal the man everybody has been talking about.

Jumping from "The Cleaner" wagon, Benjamin Bratt has landed on ABC's new comedy "Modern Family". He will be one character who has frequently been mentioned in the series but has not shown his face just yet. Bratt is none other that Gloria's ex-husband and the father of Manny Delgado.

This can only mean that Bratt's character will be in direct competition with Ed O'Neill's Jay Pritchett. In the show, Jay marries the much-younger Gloria and helps raises the only child from her previous marriage. Gloria in fact has been raving on her ex's physical abilities while Manny talks about how he admires his dad. There is no date mentioned in THR's report about the casting but Bratt is only confirmed for one episode so far.

Recently, it was also revealed that Jay's ex-wife, Dede Pritchett, will also make an appearance in the form of actress Shelley Long. The show which has just been picked up for a full season, is also awaiting a guest stint from Edward Norton. The feature film actor is playing a bassist of a famous band whom Charlie hires as an anniversary surprise for Phil in a November episode.

Benjamin Bratt was the lead role of A&E's "The Cleaner" which was not renewed for a third season.
