Sofia Vergara knew exactly what she was doing the second she took the 'Tonight Show' stage last night. The 'Modern Family' star was hellbent on one thing: playing one of host Jimmy Fallon's favorite games (and we know how much Fallon loves games) and using it to totally turn the tables on him. You like Lip Flip, huh, Jimmy? Right? You don't like it as much as Sofia does.
There are some movies that feel personal because of the relationship the writer, director or actors have to the material. 'Chef' -- written, directed and starring Jon Favreau -- doesn't just feel personal, it feels like it's ripped directly from the pages of Favreau's subconscious diary. While it's a charming enough indie film about the connection between professional and personal passions that also serves as a fascinating look inside the psychology of a major Hollywood director.
'Machete Kills,' Robert Rodriguez's follow-up to 2010's 'Machete,' ditches the grindhouse aesthetic and homage, and instead tries to emulate a late-'80s, early-'90s action flick -- basically, Rodriguez made the kind of movie he often makes. The result is an uninspired, joyless and oft-trashy exercise in self-indulgence. Rodriguez has spent his career making films the way he wants in his own backyard, and while you kind of have to admire the audacity of it all, the intent is questionable at best.
If 'Machete Kills' is any indication, director Robert Rodriguez has exceptional taste in women. Just look at the cast, which is filled with names like Jessica Alba, an all-grown-up Alexa Vega and Amber Heard. Not only that, but he knows what the fans like, seeing them sexy and guns a blazin'. Just watch out for Sofia Vergara. Her new 'Machete Kills' poster reveals her sexiness could also mean the death of you.
'Modern Family' star Sofia Vergara is having a pretty good summer. Not only was she just nominated for an Emmy, she's also reportedly engaged -- and she's topped Forbes' list of the highest-paid women on television.
The list calls itself the "highest paid TV actresses," but with Kim Kardashian in the No. 2 slot, we're not sure that's entirely accurate. (Unless, of course, you actually believed Kim was ever in love with Kris Humphries.)
More than any other ‘Modern Family’ cast member, Sofia Vergara is capitalizing on the exposure of the hit sitcom to help transition into a full-fledged movie career. Yes, she’s choosing to appear in questionable films like ‘The Smurfs’ and ‘The Three Stooges.’ But they are stepping stones leading to more-effective genre efforts like ‘Machete Kills,’ where she’s playing a leather-clad dominatrix. See for yourself.
Zooey Deschanel has made a name for herself being quirky and kitten-cute, so it was only natural for 'Saturday Night Live' to spoof her persona with a now-recurring skit depicting the actress hosting a talk show called 'Bein' Quirky With Zooey Deschanel.'
In the second installment, which aired this weekend, the 'SNL' version of Zooey was joined by actors playing fellow quirksters Michael Cera and Zooey's BFF Drew Barrymore, and the "first quirky girl with a TV show," Fran Drescher.
