Nathan Lane will return to Modern Family this spring as the brunch-munching, ascot-donning power-gay Pepper Saltzman. Although he had precious few minutes of screen time in his first appearance earlier this season, Pepper really shook things up: Mitch and Cam trashed their own house and Cam declared his love for Pepper, all to get out of going to one of his ridiculous — but fabulous-sounding! — theme brunches. (“Oscar Wilde-N’-Crazy Brunch” — where’s our invite?)He’s back! According to executive producer Steve Levitan,
Apparently, Mitch and Cam have a change of heart later in the season, and we get to see them attend one of these parties in action. Hopefully Pepper didn’t learn his lesson and will come up with a theme that inspires over-the-top, high-effort costumes. Who wouldn’t want to see Cam dressed as Mario Antoinette?
