Sofia Vergara

Colombian model-turned-actress Sofia Vergara has just joined the cast of THE SMURFS, but she won’t be appearing as a small blue creature in the film which might disappoint those that have developed a new fetish after seeing Zoe Saldana in AVATAR this past December.  Granted, Vergara would probably still be somewhat attractive if she was only as tall as 3 apples high but nevertheless, she will instead be appearing as a live-action character named Odile. The part calls for Vergara to play a feisty executive of a high-end French cosmetics company.

Reportedly, Vergara will be married to star Neil Patrick Harris which conflicts earlier reports by Entertainment Weekly stating “Glee” star Jayma Mays would be donning that role. Regardless of which woman Harris ends up shacking up with, the film will feature both actresses as well as Alan Cumming, George Lopez, Katy Perry and Hank Azaria as the evil Gargamel. Filming begins here in New York next week and audiences can expect to catch Smurf fever come August 3, 2011.

On a serious note, the fact that no one questions the believability that Vergara and Harris are romantically involved shows that not only can the openly gay actor continue to successfully play a womanizer on a hit TV show (“How I Met Your Mother”), he can also secure major Hollywood roles as a romantic lead. That precedent is worth noting and bodes well for gay actors and actresses who may be worried that the audiences suspension of disbelief doesn’t yet extend to sexual orientation. Do you think audiences would potentially accept Harris in a full-fledged action role?
