Modern Family Season 4 Casting Spoilers: Who's Playing Gloria's Mom and Sister?

TVLine has announced that Modern Family has finally found just the right women to play Gloria's feisty Colombian family.

Elizabeth Pena (La Bamba, Rush Hour) has tapped to play Pilar, mother to Sofia Vergara, TVLine has learned. Additionally, Stephanie Beatriz has been cast as Sofia, Gloria’s sister. They will appear in episode #412, entitled “Fulgencio,” which begins shooting on Monday 11/5.

Looks like we'll be waiting until season 4 episode 12 before we get to see Gloria's mom and sis, but hey. It'll be worth the wait, right?

What do you think of these two casting decisions?
