Look who’s getting into the ‘Family’ way…

Mary Lynn Rajskub will guest star on the hit ABC comedy ‘Modern Family‘ later this season, according to TV Guide Magazine.

She’ll play an ex-girlfriend of Mitchell’s (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) from back in the day when he was closeted in high school.

You know what that means: Cameron will have some kind of fit over her … and we can’t wait to see that face-off!

Rajskub spent six seasons playing curmudgeon computer whiz Chloe O’Brian, Jack Bauer’s save-the-day sidekick on ‘24,’ and recently appeared on ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ and ‘Royal Pains.’

On this week’s ‘Modern Family,’ Nathan Lane guest stars as Pepper, a friend of Cameron and Mitchell’s who’s throwing a costume brunch they want to skip. And here’s how they try to get out of it: earthquake!

‘Modern Family’ airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on ABC.

Tip from Cameron: Gays Don’t High-Five!
