Billy Dee Williams to appear on 'Modern Family' holiday special

By Matthew Dougherty,

Star Wars actor Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian himself!) will be giving a special Christmas present to ABC’s Modern Family by appearing on this year’s holiday themes episode.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the episode will revolve around Jay running into Williams, who seems to be playing himself, during a game of cards while the family is on vacation in Palm Springs. The episode is titled New Year’s Eve.

TV Fanatic says that Nathan Lane will also be returning to the series as Pepper, Mitch and Cam’s friend, in the episode after Williams’ appearance.

On tonight’s episode of Modern Family Lane’s co-star in The Producers and The Lion King, Matthew Broderick, will guest star.

Williams appeared in the second two films of the Star Wars trilogy, subtitled The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

Lane previously appeared in two episodes of season two, Earthquake and Boys’ Night.

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