Mantzoukas, who recurs as Rafi on the FX comedy, will appear in the series' 10th episode and play a jeans designer and Haley's (Sarah Hyland) co-worker/boyfriend.

The casting marks the second League funnyman to join the Steve Levitan/Chris Lloyd comedy this season. As THR exclusively reported last week, The League's Paul Scheer will also guest star on an upcoming episode as a Costco manager who interacts with Claire (Julie Bowen) and Gloria (Sofia Vergara). Sounds like there may be some rough waters ahead for Haley's lovable dingbat boyfriend Dylan (Reid Ewing).
