Hot in Cleveland' just got a little hotter!
Modern Family star Sarah Hyland is set to guest star in an upcoming episode of the TV Land sitcom's fifth season, E! News has exclusively learned. And she'll be going head-to-head with one of Cleveland's fiercest ladies: Wendie Malick's Victoria!
Hyland, who also stars in the upcoming film Vampire Academy and Lifetime's Bonnie & Clyde miniseries, will play Ivy Malone, an indie darling who is a serious threat to Victoria's chances at landing a Best Supporting Actress nomination. But Ivy has one weakness Victoria isn't above preying on: The spotlight on Ivy since her first film became a breakout has given her severe anxiety.
Hyland isn't the only guest star Hot in Cleveland fans will be treated to this season as Jason Priestly, Thomas Lennon, New Girl's Max Greenfield and The Office's Angela Kinsey have all landed season-five roles. Plus, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Craig Ferguson, Susan Lucci and Georgia Engel are all set to return to the series.
Heading into its fifth season, which premieres in the spring, Melanie (Valerie Bertinelli) will deal with the aftermath of learning she's pregnant, but she'll also have time to date one of her favorite singers. However, she'll find herself "Taylor Swift -ed" (definition: he writes a song about her!) when he catches her in a lie. Plus, TV Land fans can expect to see a crossover episode between Hot in Cleveland, which also stars Betty White and Jane Leeves, and Kirstie Alleys sitcom Kirstie. In the special event, the four ladies head to New York City, where Victoria confesses an old betrayal to Maddie Banks (Alley), her ex-roommate, in the hopes of improving her chances at landing an Oscar nomination.
