Crave Online has an interview with Sofia Vergara, here are some of the hightlights:

CraveOnline: You look amazing. Is there anything you don’t look good in?

Sofia Vergara: Well, I don’t look that good in bathing suits anymore.

CraveOnline: But I’m sure it’s still awesome.

Sofia Vergara: Everything is still up there a little bit. Yeah, I would have to say it’s still awesome.

CraveOnline: How important is it for you to be portraying a mixed-race couple on TV?

Sofia Vergara: It’s fantastic. I hope that this new season of TV shows for all the networks, maybe they’ll try to have another Gloria in their cast or that some Latin actress got a job. That would be fantastic. It’s very difficult. Now, it’s less difficult than ever but it’s still, you cannot get as many roles as a normal American person. So for a black actor I’m sure it’s the same.

CraveOnline: I hear you are going to be in the Smurfs movie. Are you a Smurf?

Sofia Vergara: No, no. I’m an executive, a makeup executive. We filmed already in New York during the spring and it’s coming out next summer. Hank Azaria is Gargamel. He looks unbelievable.

CraveOnline: What do you get to do with the Smurfs?

Sofia Vergara: Nothing really. All my scenes are with Gargamel and Neil Patrick Harris. There are Smurfs out there but I don’t see them so I never really have to talk to them which takes hours, those filming with animation.

Modern Family’s Sofia Vergara has been cast in the upcoming animated/live-action The Smurfs. She will play Odile, a “powerful executive at a high-end French cosmetics company” married to Neil Patrick Harris’ character. The film, which also stars Jayma Mays (Glee) and Hank Azaria, will begin filming in New York next week. With each awesome actor that gets added to this cast, our frustration that this movie is about blue cartoon Smurfs mounts.

Who Needs Obama? We’ve Got Eric and Jane!

E! went to the stars of Modern Family and Glee to see if they think their TV shows are doing anything to shape society’s viewpoints of the LGBTQ community, or if it’s purely entertainment.
Here is what Eric said:

“I think [our show] is a great opportunity to educate people. Our goal is to make people laugh, for sure, but while we’re making people laugh, we want to open their minds that two men can raise a baby and give it love, a future and a life. That’s icing on the cake for the show and the role. We just hope people like what we do.”
