According to The Hollywood Reporter, Benjamin Bratt is going to guest star on ABC's new comedy series Modern Family. He will play the ex-husband of Sofia Vergara's character.

Jay Pritchett (Ed O'Neill) lives with his much-younger Colombian wife, Gloria Delgado-Pritchett (Vergara). They are presently raising Gloria's child from her previous marriage, Manny Delgado (Rico Rodriguez).

Mr. Delgado (Bratt) has been talked about a lot on the show. His son idolizes him and his wife brags about his physical abilities. The character of Mr. Delgado has yet to be seen.
