"Modern Family" leading men Mitch and Cam are preparing to walk down the aisle in the two-part season finale of "Modern Family," which begins airing May 14 on ABC. They'll get some extra help from a Broadway veteran.
Tony Award winner Nathan Lane (The Producers, The Nance, "The Birdcage") portrays wedding planner extraordinaire Pepper Saltzman, who is put to the test as the grooms plan the day they've always dreamed of in "The Wedding, Part 1," which airs at 9 PM ET.
According to ABC, "Mitch and Cam's big day is finally here and nothing can ruin it, until nothing turns into a whole lot of somethings and puts wedding planner extraordinaire Pepper Saltzman (guest star Nathan Lane) to the test. Meanwhile, Jay and Gloria host the Tuckers, Phil squeezes in an eye procedure before the festivities and Claire embraces her role as 'best woman,' in 'The Wedding, Part 1.'"
The second part of "The Wedding, Part 2" will air on ABC May 21 at 9 PM ET.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
