Rico Rodriguez Would Welcome Britney Spears On 'Modern Family' (VIDEO)

Although she might not be sophisticated enough for Manny, Rico Rodriguez seems pretty excited that Britney Spears is a fan of "Modern Family." Back in January, Spears tweeted that she was looking forward to the next episode of "Modern Family" more than the Super Bowl, calling it the "funniest show on TV."

Rodriguez was flattered at Spears' mention, he told "Live! With Kelly" (weekdays, syndicated on ABC). When his followers told him that she had tweeted about the show, he had simple response: "Really? Awesome!" Rodriguez tweeted back at Spears and thanked her for being a fan of the show.

After Spears' tweet, #GetBritneyOnModernFamily started to trend on Twitter, as Spears' fans started a social media campaign to get her a guest spot on the show after successful cameos on "How I Met Your Mother" and "Glee." While she responded that she'd "love to be on it," there's been no word on if the show's producers are actually considering the possibility. Clearly, there's at least one member of the cast who wouldn't mind.
