Things are about to get a little bit Funke-y on "Modern Family."
David Cross, beloved to "Arrested Development" as pioneering "analrapist" Tobias Funke, has landed a recurring role on the ABC comedy, the network confirms to TheWrap. Cross will play Duane, a city councilman who faces off against Claire (played by Julie Bowen).
Cross recently worked on the short-lived Fox comedy "Running Wilde," with fellow "Arrested Development" vets Will Arnett and Mitchell Hurwitz. (He played Keri Russell's "eco-terrorist" beau Dr. Andy Weeks.) He also reprises his voice role of Ian in the upcoming sequel "Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip-Wrecked."
The third season of "Modern Family" premieres on Sept. 21.
News of Cross' casting was first published by the Hollywood Reporter.
