Modern Family Wants to Trade In Its Baby

By
MODERN FAMILY - "See You Next Fall" - The whole family is gathering at Jay's before heading out to Alex's graduation ceremony from middle school, but while at the house, Jay is preoccupied hiding a botox mishap from everyone, Cameron is upset about Mitchell's habit of laughing at his expense, and Phil tries to sympathize with, yet also antagonize Claire on her impending breakdown over the kids growing up too fast. All of this, plus a faulty gate, could mean their missing Alex's big moment, on "Modern Family," WEDNESDAY, MAY 18 (9:00-9:31 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Modern Family has been hinting that the show would recast Jaden and Ella Hiller, the super-cute twins that play Lily, the world's most stoic baby. Jesse Tyler Ferguson mentioned it on Inside the Actors Studio a few weeks ago, and Steven Levitan started floating the idea back in May, but it now seems to be the real deal. Producers have apparently issued a casting notice for an "Asian, 3- to 4-year-old daughter of Mitchell and Cameron." Sigh. Lily's adorable lack of interest in her surroundings made Cam and Mitchell's high-octane parenting so much more hilarious. [E!]
