TV Squad asked Sofia Vergara who should play her character’s mom, and she chose legendary Italian actress Sophia Loren.

The 75-year-old Loren does bear some physical resemblance to Vergara, and she does have comic chops (Vergara cites Loren’s work in Marcello Mastroianni films). She also has recent experience playing a mother – her own mother, at that, in an Italian television biopic based her sister’s book, according to the Times of India.

What do you think about this casting?

“I go on a date with Gloria because I said a faux pas at a dinner party and I felt really bad about it,” Stonestreet explains in the video. “So we go out for dinner, her and I together. That really tested my ability to play a gay man, spending a week with Sofia Vergara. I said if anybody sees any of my straightness … that’s gonna be the week to see it.”

‘Modern Family’ makes Sofia Vergara famous after 20 years

The NY Post has an interview with Sofia Vergara; Here are some of the highlights:

‘Modern Family” star Sofia Vergara grew up hating her first name.

“The only person I knew who had that name was my great aunt — and she was old,” said Vergara.

“So, for me, my name was like an old lady.”

Now, plenty of young people are named Sofia in her home country, Colombia, and evidently the 37-year-old beauty had something to do with that.

“Yeah, I became very popular,” she said. “I’ve been working for 20 years!” she adds, like that explains everything.

As the devoted mom to precocious Manny (Rico Rodgriguez) and the trophy wife of Jay (Ed O’Neill of “Married with Children“), she makes Gloria sexy, smart, funny and sweet — no easy job in a medium used to turning Spanish-speaking women into one-dimensional Charos.

She is shocked it all worked.

“I didn’t think people were going to like her because she looks like a gold digger,” she said.

“It’s this young woman with an older guy. I thought, ‘They’re going to hate her!’ But then I started understanding more of the character, and I love her.”

But Vergara’s sharp ear failed her spectacularly during a recent appearance on “The View.”

On the show, she was asked about being a young-looking mom. (In real life, she’s the divorced mother of a 17-year-old son, Manolo.)

Vergara joked, “I was 13. I was raped.”

The line sparked criticism, even outrage, online.

“With this accent I’m trying to do jokes on live TV? I mean, of course something’s going to come out wrong,” she said, sighing.

Fans of Sofia Vergara, are upset to find out that her voice is dubbed by another woman on Modern Family playing in Columbia.

Now with the raging success of the hit sitcom, Modern Family has been picked up in other countries, including Vergara’s home of Columbia – and fans aren’t pleased to see that Sofia Vergara isn’t the voice over of her own character, Gloria Delgado-Pritchet.

Vergara says:

“It’s about to air in Colombia and they’re having problems because they translate the whole show in Spanish and they have somebody who does my voice… They’re like, ‘We know that’s not you! That doesn’t sound like you.’ They’re complaining.”
