Fight Club star Edward Norton is set to guest in a November episode of Modern Family, TVGuide.com has confirmed.

Family follows three sections of a semi-dysfunctional but loving family just trying to get through life. Norton's storyline involves the couple that seems the most normal: Phil (Ty Burrell) and Claire (Julie Bowen).

As a surprise anniversary gift to her husband Phil, Claire hires a famous band to play, and it includes Norton as the bassist, EW first reported.
