Jane Krakowski, Jessie Eisenberg, John Benjamin Hickey to guest star on 'Modern Family'

The hit ABC show Modern Family is pulling out all the stops for the fifth season's 11th episode, by bringing in three guest stars.

The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Jane Krakowski, Jessie Eisenberg and John Benjamin Hickey will be guest starring on the 11th episode of the show's fifth season. The episode starts shooting Nov. 4 and is titled "Under Pressure."

Krakowski will play "mean girl" Dr. Donna, a mom from Manny's school that goes up against Sofia Vergara's Gloria. Eisenberg, who rarely appears in TV, will play Mitch and Cam's eco-obsessed neighbor. Hickey has been cast to play one of the Dunphy's therapists.

Krakowski was last seen on NBC's 30 Rock. Eisenberg mostly sticks to movies and was in the 2013 movie Now You See Me that is reportedly getting a sequel. Hickey is a Tony Award-winning and Emmy-nominated actor, who is dating series writer Jeffrey Richman and has been on the shows The Big C and Hannibal.

Modern Family's Oct. 23 episode drew some attention as many felt it ripped of Seinfeld, The Huffington Post reports.

Many felt that "The Help" was too similar to "The Barber," where Jerry gets a haircut from his barber's nephew and feels like he's sneaking around on his barber. In "The Help," feel and act similar to Jerry as the Cam and Mitch deal with their wedding planner's assistant.
