Sofia Vergara Meets The Smurfs

Sofia Vergara's currently starring in America's latest comedy sensation, Modern Family, but she'll be taking time out over the next little while to star in two less realistic projects, with the news that she'll be part of the live-action cast of The Smurfs and part of the voice cast of Happy Feet 2. The word from the Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog is that she's set to play "Odile, a powerful executive at a high-end French cosmetics company who is married to the live-action character played by Neil Patrick Harris." It was previously reported that Glee's Jayma Mays was playing Harris' pregnant wife, so either his domestic life is in turmoil, the earlier report was wrong or the two characters have been confused somewhere along the line. Vergara's also set to take an as-yet unspecified voice role in George Miller's Happy Feet 2, which puts her alongside Brad Pitt, Robin Williams, Elijah Wood and Hank Azaria - who's also in The Smurfs. If we had to, we'd guess that her character there will be a sexy, exotic type - but of course that's wild speculation on our parts. Both films are due out in 2011: The Smurfs in August and Happy Feet 2 in November. Source Here

'Modern's' Rico Rodriguez makes Manny his own

IN A SEASON of quirkier than usual sitcom kids, Manny Delgado still manages to stand out. The amorous Colombian-born middle-schooler from ABC's "Modern Family," Manny is a joy to his mother Gloria (Sofia Vergara), a puzzle to his stepfather Jay (Ed O'Neill) and played with a fearless exuberance by 11-year-old Rico Rodriguez, who, it turns out, looks taller on-screen. Told so by a not very diplomatic visitor to the show's Burbank, Calif., set, the young actor replied, in media-savvy fashion: "Really? That's interesting." He then stretched up a hand to demonstrate how much taller he intends to become both offscreen and on. To Read More Click Here .

'Modern Family' actors who play gay couple dish on real life

On ABC's Modern Family, Eric Stonestreet, 38, is the flashy and affectionate Lion King-loving Cameron Tucker, who moonlights as Fizbo the clown.

'Modern Family' star Sofia Vergara aims to collect from Gerard Butler, with interest

Modern Family's Sofia Vergara guested on The Tonight Show last night and killed. It turns out she'd met Jay Leno's other guest, Gerard Butler, about two years ago when he was 'like a damsel in distress at the Chateau Marmont' and had no cash on him to pay the valet. Vergara intervened and lent him $60, because she didn't want him to go all night without extra money. [Insert audience Ahhh.] Now, she figures he owes her $300. [Insert audience cheers.] Butler noted that he had tried to pay her back once. 'Oh yeah, when we were with people, and he comes [to] me, 'Okay, here's the 60 bucks for the other night,' she said. 'I mean, at least come with like a respectable sum of money!' Vergara also talked about her 18-year-old son, who she took to Vegas for his birthday because she thinks if he experiences things in moderation without mystery, he'll stay a good kid. 'Gambling, hookers!,' Butler cracked. 'But me with, under my supervision,' she said. 'Maybe that's what you needed. Maybe you can do all that but with my supervision.' To Read More Click Here .
