Nathan Lane would love to headline a spinoff of the ABC comedy MODERN FAMILY.
He’s even got the name picked out: A DASH OF PEPPER.
Lane, 58, picked up his third Emmy nomination this season for playing Mitch [Jesse Tyler Ferguson] and Cam’s [Eric Stonestreet] flamboyant friend — and wedding planner — Pepper Saltzman.
“I think it could be fun,” the actor said during a visit to the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills yesterday. “Look, it is worth a lunch isn’t it?”
The Pepper character — known for throwing over the top costume themed parties — was created by MODERN FAMILY Executive Producer Christopher Lloyd and first appeared during season two.
“[Chris] would have to say, ‘I think it is a good idea,’” Lane says. “But I would be happy to discuss it. They seem to have given some of the ingredients for that in the last season.”
