Sofia Vergara, who was announced to be part of the cast in the Lee Daniels-directed drama The Paperboy, has just dropped out of the film. These independent films take forever to come together, and when the start date of the movie got pushed back a week, the schedule conflicted with her day job on Modern Family, whose third season will be getting underway by then.
This isn't much of a surprise actually. Once they announced the start date, we were already questioning how they'd work Sofia's schedule out since it was bound to conflict with Modern Family's schedule. Hopefully recasting doesn't cause more delays and hopefully this doesn't also affect Tobey who has The Great Gatsby on deck as well. And really hopefully this doesn't affect Zac's participation in the Bahrani pic.
