The "Modern Family" star is expected to play a femme fatale opposite Sean Hayes and Will Sasso in the Farrelly brothers' big-screen comedy.

Modern Family star Sofia Vergara is in discussions to join the growing cast of Three Stooges.

Sean Hayes and Will Sasso have so far been cast in the comedy being directed by the Farrelly brothers. Still up for grabs is the part of Moe.

The movie is not a biopic but will be divided into roughly half-hour vignettes.

Vergara doesn't have the offer just yet, although one is expected to be issued shortly. She is expected to play a devious woman who pretends to be the wife of a dying man and tells the Stooges she'll pay them a handsome sum if they kill the man in his sleep. The story line makes up the second vignette.

Vergara is repped by WME and Untitled.
