Modern Family is staging a Married … With Children reunion.

The actor played the sex-obsessed, trash-talking Bud Bundy for 11 seasons on Fox's Married … With Children. Faustino is scheduled to film his episode, which sadly won't include screen time with O'Neill, on Wednesday. An airdate for the episode has yet to be determined. 

Faustino of late has been lending his voice to Nickelodeon's The Legend of Korra. He's repped by Kass and Fuller Downs. He joins a roster of guest stars this season that includes Star Wars' Billy Dee Williams, the return of Nathan Lane, The League's Paul Scheer and Matthew Broderick, among others.

Modern Family airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on ABC. Hit the comments with your thoughts on if you'd like to see Grandmaster B make a special appearance.
