This week, Modern Family star Sofia Vergara told TV Guide she’s close to landing the role of beauty salon owner Daniela in the movie version of the Tony-winning Broadway musical, In the Heights, which begins shooting this summer. That got us thinking about our dream casting choices. Check them out:
Lin-Manuel Miranda (Usnavi)
As the dynamic, high strung (and lets be honest: loud!) bodega owner Usnavi in In the Heights, Lin Manuel Miranda won critical raves and a Tony nomination for Best Actor in a Musical. But the people that Lin really won over were the fans — night after night for hundreds of performances, the Puerto Rican star brought packed houses to their feet using his unique charm, impeccable comedic timing, larger-than-life personality and his amazing rap skills. We can't picture anyone else in the role, and we hope we wont have to!
