Heat Vision is reporting today that Modern Family star Sofia Vergera has joined the cast of the Raja Gosnell-directed adaptation of The Smurfs. She joins an already very interesting cast that includes Neil Patrick Harris, Glee‘s Jayma Mays and Hank Azaria. She will play a powerful executive at a high-end French cosmetics company who is the boss of the live-action character played by Neil Patrick Harris.
This is noteworthy for two reasons. One is that the Smurfs film will be in 3D, and I’ve always wanted to see what Ms. Vergara looks like through stereoscopic glasses. Secondly… well, I forgot the second reason.
The Smurfs is set to begin shooting in New York next week, and will hit theaters in Summer 2011.
