Modern Family finally put a face to the name when it brought on James Van Der Beek to play Bo Johnson, Cam’s (Eric Stonestreet) first crush and his sister’s baby daddy.

The Dawson’s Creek alum showed up on the “No Small Feet” episode at Cam and Mitchell’s (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) front door looking for Pam and baby Calhoun with the hopes of winning back his family after being in jail. While Mitchell was all heart eyes over him, Cam was not falling for Bo’s dreamy eyes. “Do not look at him. He is a siren. He draws you in with those big, beautiful blue eyes, and the next thing you know, you’re giving him your great-grandfather’s Civil War bayonet and he’s selling it for magic beans,” Cam warned Mitchell.

While Van Der Beek’s character was easy on the eyes, he wasn’t the sharpest tool in the shed. Bo was also kinda shady. So, when he proposed to Pam, Mitchell stepped in to say heck no, Bo’s gotta go. “Bo is a disaster, OK? He hasn’t changed one bit. He is a liar, he is a thief, he is a day drinker, he stole that ring from Heather, who’s waiting outside for him in case you say no,” said Mitchell. “He’s also an idiot.”

In the end, Pam wasn’t falling for his baby blues either, and it was bye-bye, Bo!
