Rico Rodriguez is taking over the Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 premiere!

The Modern Family star hit the segway-filled carpet with ET to chat with the stars of the film – which included his adorable 21-year-old sister, Raini Rodriguez.

"You get to see Maya all grown up and ready to go to college and experience life and flirt with boys and sort of get herself into trouble," Raini told Rico on the carpet.

The film picks up six years later, bringing back our favorite segway-riding mall cop, Paul Blart (Kevin James), as he heads to Las Vegas for a vacation with his daughter (Rodriguez) before she heads off to college. As you can probably guess, safety never sleeps for Blart, who has to rise to duty when things go awry.

"We made it bigger and better. It's a lot of fun for the whole family," said James, 49, of the film. "I didn't plan on making another one until people were coming up to me, and your sister kept begging me for a job, so I said yeah alright, we'll do it."

Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 hits theaters April 17.
