“Modern Family” and “Four Brothers” actress Sofia Vergara has joined not one but two of next year’s biggest family features reports Heat Vision.
First up is “The Smurfs” which Raja Gosnell is directing for Sony Pictures. Vergara plays Odile, a powerful executive at a high-end French cosmetics company who is married to Neil Patrick Harris’ character.
This has caused confusion as it was previously indicated that Jayma Mays (TV’s “Glee”) will play Harris’ pregnant wife in the film. Shooting begins next week in New York City for release August 3rd 2011.
Vergara has also scored a voice role in George Miller’s “Happy Feet 2” which is currently taping in Sydney for release through Warner Bros. Pictures on November 18th 2011.
