Sofia Vergara Joining The Three Stooges ?

ON

Sofia Vergara is said to be up for a part in the Farrelly brothers’ upcoming The Three Stooges, according to Variety.

Vergara, best known for her breakout role on “Modern Family,” would play the female lead in the tribute to the original comedy legends. She would join Will Sasso as Curly, Sean Hayes as Larry and a yet-to-be-cast Moe. The plot, inspired by original “Three Stooges” shorts, will have the trio left as newborns outside an orphanage and will follow them into adulthood, the full film being divided into three half-hour shorts.

Final casting for the film is expected to be announced shortly, though the brothers (who recently directed Hall Pass) announced that they have a role in mind for Cher (who previously appeared in their Stuck on You) that is presumably a separate part than the one Vergara is up for.

Making a swift transition into feature films, Vergara’s upcoming projects also include The Smurfs and Happy Feet 2.
