Paul Scheer will be guest starring as a Costco manager in an upcoming episode of Modern Family that'll be airing later in the season, which means that he can cross another show off his list in his attempt to appear on every hip comedy on TV. He's now adding Modern Family to an impressive list of guest star credits that includes 30 Rock, Parks and Rec, Party Down, Childrens Hospital, Comedy Bang! Bang!, Bob's Burgers, and Happy Endings (not to mention his own shows NTSF:SD:SUV and The League).

There will officially be another year of the Shiva Bowl! So many more opportunities for Ellie to use the words jibber and suckstick, for Rafi and Dirty Randy to do awful things, for Taco to do secretly genius things, and for Andre to wear things he saw in GQ. Yep, it's great news for everyone.
The League is welcoming a couple of extended family members this holiday season: Sarah Silverman and Jeff Goldblum. Silverman will play Andre's (Paul Scheer) sister and Goldblum will play Ruxin's (Nick Kroll) father. They'll both be coming for Thanksgiving dinner, which will have the dudes' fantasy football league gathered around the festive table, as is tradition.
Here's the first promo for the upcoming season of The League, which shows Seth Rogen's Dirty Randy character taking some cheesecake photos and generally being, well, dirty. Also: a reenactment of the Super Bowl Shuffle, which I can definitely get behind. Fair warning, this 30 second ad has a 15 second ad tacked onto the front of it and a popover ad on top of it. It is what it is. Stupid internet.
