Contract Negotiations Might Delay 'Modern Family's' Production Schedule

With table read set for tomorrow, it seems uncertain whether Modern Family's six Emmy-nominated leads will show up. Simply, the gang wants more money. Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet and Sofia Vergara are negotiating together, ­Friends-style, to get their $65,000 an episode up to about $200,000, plus some backend dollars. Ed O'Neill is going at it alone because he was already at $100,000. $200,000 sounds like a lot – putting the actors at about $4,800,000 a season – and it is, but you have to consider a hugely popular series like Modern Family, especially once it goes into syndication, is worth easily well into the [...]

Sofia Vergara Will Host SNL in April

Modern Family's Sofia Vergara will host SNL on April 7 with musical guest One Direction. I smell a sequel to a certain Helen Mirren sketch from last season.

Woody Allen and Sofia Vergara Help Out John Turturro's Fading Gigolo

Woody Allen and Sofia Vergara will star in John Turturro's new film Fading Gigolo, where thankfully they will not be each other's romantic interests, because ew. The plot sounds funny but also…complicated:

The film, which will also star Turturro, finds him and Allen playing "cash-strapped best friends who decide to go into the gigolo business together and subsequently attract the suspicion of the Hasidic Jewish community in which they live. Duo take on the pseudonyms Virgil and Bongo, with Allen pimping out Turturro's character until he falls for a Jewish widow, who has not yet been cast." Sharon Stone is also on board as "Allen's dermatologist who hires [...]

Here Are This Week's SNL Promos, Featuring Sofia Vergara, Jason Sudeikis, and Sofia Vergara's Accent

So what are the odds that Sofia Vergara will be in a Manuel Ortiz sketch this weekend? 90%? 150%?

Sofia Vergara Pulls a Hidden Camera Prank on Ellen

Modern Family's Sofia Vergara was on Ellen yesterday, and Ellen sent her to a store on the WB lot with hidden cameras and an earpiece that allowed her to tell Sofia exactly what to say. Dudes being infinitely polite and patient to an insane-yet-beautiful lady ensues.
