Al Pacino picked up an Emmy on Sunday night for playing Dr. Jack Kevorkian in HBO’s “You Don’t Know Jack,” but he isn’t opposed to following it up with a guest visit to another Emmy award-winning show – the ABC comedy “Modern Family.”

Pacino told Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson on the red carpet before the event that he is a fan of the show, even if he doesn’t watch it regularly.

“I don’t see ‘Modern Family’ much, but a friend of mine’s in it – Jesse Ferguson,” the actor told Shaun, referring to Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who plays Mitchell Pritchett.

Al revealed that Jesse, who he previously starred with in the Shakespeare in the Park production of “The Merchant of Venice,” which moves to Broadway in October, got the superstar to watch the popular sitcom.

“I worked with him and he showed me a couple of episodes,” Al explained. “[It’s] very funny and they’re all great.”

When Shaun asked if he’d be interested in making a cameo on the show, Al said it is the realm of possibilities.

“Sure, why not,” he said. “I’m here, right?”
