'Modern Family': 'Workaholics' Star Adam Devine Is The New Manny (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

It looks like Jay and Manny are going to start getting healthy on "Modern Family" whether they like it or not. For them, though, it was a trade-off well worth it. "Workaholics" star Adam Devine joined the show as Gloria's new manny. He's brought on to help with the baby, but he also helps the whole family.

At first, Jay and Manny were against his efforts to improve their health, but then they saw that he was also able to stop Gloria from yelling. This, they decided, was too great an opportunity to pass up. As TV Fanatic's Leigh Raines put it. "Voila, he's hired and it's protein shakes and morning power walks.”

ScreenCrush's Britt Hayes thought Devine was "perfect" for this guest spot. Even better, the "Pitch Perfect" scene stealer is scheduled to be a recurring character.

Look for the new manny in future episodes of "Modern Family," every Wednesday night at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
