In "Chasing Papi," Fox 2000 Pictures' screwball comedy aimed at the ever-widening mainstream Latin audience, Sofia Vergara plays the un-benign and undiplomatic Cici, a Miami waitress besotted with Tomas Fuentes, a.k.a. Papi Chulo (Eduardo Verastegui). Already a huge star in the Latin market, Vergara -- who moved from her native Colombia to Miami at 22 --has made her career as a TV host, a role she now performs on an ad hoc basis for Univision. She has graced more than 100 international magazine covers, is seen in over 80 countries and hopes to make a similar splash in Hollywood.
