Sofia Vergara to Get Animated on ‘Family Guy’ + ‘The Cleveland Show’
‘Modern Family’ star Sofia Vergara will be lending her voice to not one, but two Seth McFarlane shows this fall!
Man, everything really is coming up Sofia Vergara, isn’t it? She’s the top-paid actress working in television, she might have just gotten engaged… and now she’s about to get animated in an episode of Family Guy!
According to EW, the Modern Family star has just signed on to voice Peter Griffin’s fantasy love interest in an upcoming episode of Seth McFarlane’s primetime cartoon. The episode will feature a cutaway gag depicting Peter as a “telenovela lotharia,” with Sofia playing his lover. She’ll also play a woman selling roses in a restaurant scene.
But that’s not all: Sofia is also set to appear on McFarlane’s Family Guy spinoff, The Cleveland Show. She’ll be voicing a character named Tia Sofia who tries to talk Cleveland into hosting a quinceanera for Cleveland Jr.’s 15 birthday—even though the quinceanera is traditionally reserved for girls. Is hilarity about to ensue? Almost certainly!
Though Family Guy isn’t as celebrated for its celebrity cameos as, say, The Simpsons, this is still pretty entertaining news. It’s also possible that The Simpsons will need to start guarding its throne a little more carefully: Family Guy’s 11th season will also feature cameos from Johnny Depp, Ryan Reynolds, Elizabeth Banks, and Kellan Lutz. The Cleveland Show’s 4th season, meanwhile, boasts the voices of Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, and Bruno Mars.
Be sure to stay tuned for these and more fab celeb voices hitting your television in the fall!
