Sofia Vergara of ABC’s Modern Family fame has been cast for a guest role on The Simpsons. The Wrap reports Vergara will play Bart’s new teacher Mrs. Berrera in the upcoming episode “Teenage Mutant Milk-Caused Hurdles.”
The spin here is Mrs Berrera will catch the admiring attention of both Bart and Principal Skinner. This should cause some hilarity between those two characters. Executive producer Al Jean says this may not be just a one-off spot either with a possibility of Vergara having a recurring role.
In 2013 Marcia Wallace, the voice of The Simpsons’ iconic school teacher Mrs Krabappel, sadly passed away. As they say, the show must go on.
