Sofia Vergara has two great things ahead of her: Family Guy and The Cleveland Show

July 24th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Modern family has a couple of great things in it. And one of the them is Sofia Vergara. It’s great to see she’s branching out…

Yes, the very lovely Sofia Vergara is set to play the love interest of (are you serious – ed) Peter Griffin in the new series of Family Guy! Yes, The Modern Family actress will cameo as Peter’s fantasy lover. She will also play a rose selling woman in a restaurant where Quagmire is attempting to ‘woo’ Peter so he’ll agree to do him a favour.

And, not finished in the McFarlane-verse, the actress will pop up in the companion show, The Cleveland Show, as a character (below) called Tia Sofia, who wants to help Cleveland throw a quinceañera for Cleveland Jr’s birthday.

She’s in good comapny this year as Family Guy‘s 11th season will also feature Johnny Depp, Ryan Reynolds, Elizabeth Banks, and Kellan Lutz and will kick off in September. The Cleveland Show season 4 will start on October 7th and will feature recurring star Kanye West, along with Nicki Minaj, Bruno Mars, will.i.a.m, and ?uestlove.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
