Kobe Bryant to appear on ABC's 'Modern Family'

March 3, 2010 | 12:39 pm

The Kiss Cam happened fairly early in the Lakers' 122-99 victory Tuesday over the Indiana Pacers, but it was largely welcomed, particularly with how uninspiring the game started out.

The segment eventually locked in on Sophia Vergara and Ty Burrell, who were filming an episode of ABC's "Modern Family." The awkwardness between Burrell and Vergara wasn't the case of the Kiss Cam locking in on either two people who don't know each other or who don't like each other. Lakers guard Kobe Bryant will also be part of the episode, as the crew filmed his cameo appearance after the game. And according to Bryant, let's just say he's not obsessing over his lines like he does over his game.

Of course, Bryant is no stranger to television. He's appeared in shows such as "Sesame Street," "Moesha," "In the House" and "Sister, Sister." So part of his wanting to wing it also may mean he already knows the drill.
