Daniel Levy is in-demand. 

Per TV Line, The Schitt's Creek star will stop by Modern Family Season 10 in a guest-starring capacity this fall. 

He will be playing a courtroom sketch artist who draws both Mitchell and Cam, but neither character is happy about the end result.

The pair goes on a mission to find out why the sketch artist would draw them in such bad taste, and they find out that the man is out for revenge. 

But, who is this man? 

We'll need to tune in to the episode to find out. Modern Family generally pulls in some robust guest stars, but this role sure sounds like the perfect one for Daniel.

The character is quick-witted, with some great comedy timing. If you've not watched Schitt's Creek, then you should definitely give it a try. 

As previously reported, Modern Family Season 10 is scheduled to bow Wednesday, September 26th

The show's future beyond that milestone season is uncertain, as the cast will need to negotiate new deals if the network wants to keep the show around. 

Modern Family Season 9 was down almost 25 percent vs. Modern Family Season 8. It averaged 5.7 million viewers and a 1.6 rating among adults 18-49.

Older shows come with higher price tags, so it certainly seems like the show will need to stop the declines if it wants to continue at ABC.
