Has Peyton Manning caught the acting bug? The retired NFL player will be starring in season eight of Modern Family.
Manning will guest star as Coach Gary, baby Joe’s sports tutor, who is recruited by Gloria (Sofia Vergara) to help teach her son how to throw and catch. He will appear in the 12th episode of the season, ET reports.
This will be Manning’s first official acting role. He has appeared on a few shows in the past, but always performed as himself. Since his retirement from the NFL, Manning has been making his way into the Hollywood circuit. In September, he was a roast master for Rob Lowe’s Comedy Central roast.
Modern Family airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
