Matthew Broderick - Matthew Broderick to guest star on Modern Family

Matthew Broderick will guest star on 'Modern Family'.

The Tony Award winning actor will join the comedy show as a ''neurotic new friend'' of regular character Phil Dunphy (played by Ty Burrell), ABC has confirmed.

No other details of his character have been released.

Matthew's wife Sarah Jessica Parker will also appear on the small screen when she stars in the latest series of 'Glee'.

The former 'Sex and the City' actress will be a ''frazzled and eccentric'' editor of the acclaimed fashion magazine's website when she makes her guest appearance in the musical drama and show bosses think she is ''hilarious''.

The show's co-creator and executive producer Ian Brennan said: ''Sarah Jessica Parker is gonna be running Vogue.com.

''That's sort of where we encounter this character, who's sort of frazzled, eccentric, hilarious. It's gonna be good.''

Sarah Jessica's storyline sees her encounter both Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) and Kurt Hummel (Chris Colfer) in New York.

Darren Criss, who plays Kurt's boyfriend Blaine Anderson, previously spoke about how excited he was about the casting.

He said: ''I've had a good ride, sort of hanging on to Chris' coattails. If I could continue to do that, that'll be great... And if that yields work with Sarah Jessica Parker, I'll be thrilled. That'd be so cool. I love her.''
