Sofia Vergara To Guest Star On Family Guy And Cleveland Show
Things seem to be going actress Sofia Vergara's way these days. The Colombian actress recently topped Forbes' list of 2012 Higest Paid TV actresses. Between her movie roles, her various endorsement deals, the management company she co-owns, not to mention a steady gig on ABC's Modern Family, she's not doing so bad for herself, and it looks like she'll be adding guest-starring on two of Fox's animated comedy series to her resume.
Entertainment Weekly shared the news today, stating that Vergara has signed on to cameo in an episode of Fox's Family Guy for Season 11, playing the role of Peter Griffin's fantasy love interest. Seems like a fitting part for the beautiful actress, who plays the actual love interest to another TV family-guy (Modern Family's Jay Prtichett.) She's apparently going to be multitasking in her stint on Seth MacFarlane's comedy, as she's also set to voice the part of a woman "selling roses in a restaurant where Quagmire is “wooing” Peter so that Peter will do him a big favor." Sounds romantic.
In related news, Vergara will also be lending her voice to The Cleveland Show in an upcoming episode, playing the role of a character named Tia Sofia. Her part has something to do with trying to get Cleveland to host a quinceanera for Cleveland Jr, who's turning 15. It should be interesting to hear her pitch there. Quinceaneras: not just for Latin American teen girls anymore?
Both Family Guy and Cleveland Show already have growing lists of guest stars in the works for their respective seasons. Season 11 of FG is set to include guest "appearances" by Johnny Depp, Ryan Reynolds, Elizabeth Banks and Lellan Lutz. And Vergara joins Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Bruno Mars, will.i.am and ?uestlove among the guest stars of Cleveland Show's fourth season, which debuts this October.
