Sofia Vergara will channel her inner alien in her upcoming movie, “Escape from Planet Earth”.
Out in theaters on February 15th, Sofia Vergara is promoting her latest project “Escape from Planet Earth,” an animated 3-D children’s movie. Fresh off a Modern Family SAG award win and attending the Superbowl in New Orleans, Vergara is back to work in Los Angeles promoting her upcoming movie release.
Vergara is the voice of BNN reporter Gabby Babbelbrock, a clumsy blue alien that has panic attacks on the air and flirts with people she’s interviewing.
“She brings a reality to the news” said the actress, adding that that her character’s imperfections make her relatable.
The all-star cast includes George Lopez, Jessica Alba, Brendan Fraser and Sarah Jessica Parker.
“Certainly there was awareness of the (Latino) community, but the actors just fit the roles,” Cal Brunker, director and co-writer of “Escape from Planet Earth” said about casting Vergara, Lopez and Alba.
“Escape from Planet Earth” is about Astronaut, Scorch Supernova who finds himself caught in a trap when he responds to an SOS from a notoriously dangerous alien planet.
