A familiar role.
Entertainment Weekly is reporting that "GH" alum Billy Dee Williams (ex-Tousaint) will be doing a guest spot on the Primetime sitcom, "Modern Family." Williams will be appearing as himself in the episode, "New Year's Eve." Look for him to run into Jay (Ed O’Neill) at a card game during a trip to Palm Springs.
Williams is probably best known for the role of Lando Calrissian in the "Star Wars" saga. He joined "General Hospital: Night Shift" as Toussaint DuBois in 2008 before crossing over to "General Hospital" in 2009.
