Sofia Vergara would love “sharp-tongued” Simon Cowell to make an appearance on Modern Family.
The Colombian actress has played feisty Gloria in the Golden Globe-winning ABC series since it began in 2009, and has welcomed stars like Matt Dillon, Leslie Mann and Kevin Hart on to set in guest roles.
But the person she’d most like to see make a cameo is music mogul Simon, who Sofia says would give Gloria a good run for her money when it comes to arguing.
“We have been blessed with some incredible guests, but if you are asking who my dream guest would be I would have to say Mr Simon Cowell,” she shared with Britain’s Metro newspaper.
“He is known for having one of the sharpest tongues in showbiz. Gloria is known for her sharp tongue. It could make for some funny TV – and maybe Mr Nasty would learn never to mess with Latin American women!”
Simon is no stranger to cameos, having previously appeared in two episodes of The Simpsons, once as himself, then as a brutally honest judge called Henry, and in a handful of Family Guy episodes.
In May (17), Modern Family, which has so far won 21 Emmys, was renewed for two more seasons. The show made instant stars out of Sofia, Ariel Winter and Sarah Hyland, as well as boosting the careers of established actors Ed O’Neill and Julie Bowen.
Season nine of the show is slated to hit screens later this year.
