On Oct. 12, a few days before he visited the Modern Family set, Crystal signed on to star in a new movie called We Are Unsatisfied. According to Deadline, the movie will star Crystal as an alcoholic dermatologist who becomes friends with a struggling comedian after the comedian moves to Long Island.

Ben Schwartz, who starred on Parks and Recreation and House of Lies, will play the young comedian.
