Yesterday we got a first look at the star’s singing voice when co-star Jesse Tyler Ferguson posted a snap of the actress singing Adele’s “Hello.” While it’s not clear if Hyland will be grabbing a mic in the televised musical event, she sure will be strapping on her dancing shoes as Baby’s extroverted older sister, Lisa Houseman.
The TV movie doesn’t yet have an air date, but it does have an already star-studded cast. Abigail Breslin will star as Frances “Baby” Houseman opposite Colt Prattes in the role of Johnny. Former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger has been cast as Penny, and Debra Messing will play Baby’s mother, Marjorie Houseman.
Hyland has had plenty of experience playing an extroverted older sister as Haley Dunphy in ABC’s Modern Family, so we’re sure she’ll hit it out of the park with this fitting role.
