Sofía Vergara has found a lot of fans for both her beauty and comedy acting thanks to Modern Family, but now she’s going in a slightly less funny direction, as Variety reports she’s in negotiations to join the action sequel Machete Kills for director Robert Rodriguez.
The actress will portray Madame Desdemona, a leather-clad mistress whose harlots have information for Machete (Danny Trejo). She joins a growing cast which also includes Mel Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba, Amber Heard, and Demián Bichir.
Robert Rodriguez is directing from his own original screenplay. Production is scheduled to begin very soon in Austin, Texas.
