Sofia Vergara’s character Gloria Pritchett is studying for her US citizenship test on Modern Family. But she’s distracted when her ex-husband Javier pays a visit. Javier Delgado is the biological father of Manny, and he’s drop-dead gorgeous. Javier is portrayed by Benjamin Bratt.
It’s been two years since we’ve seen Javier on Modern Family. What’s Bratt up to? After wrapping up the TV mini-series 24: Live Another Day with Kiefer Sutherland and Tate Donovan, Bratt’s been filming The Infiltrator. It’s about a US Customs official who uncovers a money laundering scheme involving the notorious Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar. It’s based on the book written by real life Federal Agent Robert Mazur (Bryan Cranston). Modern Family airs Wednesdays at 8pm on ABC.
