Steve Zahn Joins Modern Family.

zahnSteve Zahn (Reality Bites) is joining Modern Family‘s upcoming sixth season in the recurring role of Ronnie, the patriarch of the new family that moves in next door to the Dunphys. Ronnie and his brood will be the neighbors from hell.

In addition to his regular roles on HBO’s Treme and ABC’s quickly-cancelled Mind Games, Zahn’s TV credits include guest stints on Monk and Friends. His big-screen credits include National Security, Daddy Day Care and Employee of the Month.

The casting news comes as Modern Family aims for the history books at Monday’s primetime Emmy Awards. If the show wins best comedy series, it will tie NBC’s Frasier as the all-time most-winning series in that category with five awards each.
