We now know that Elizabeth Peña will be playing Sofia Vergara‘s mom on Modern Family…but she wasn’t the only one that was up for the role.

LatinGossip has learned that Charytin Goyco was also being considered!

In fact, she was THIS close to getting the part!

We don’t doubt in Elizabeth’s talent but Charytin would have brought in the true Latino audience to watch the show and her wild outlandish personality would have been hilarious and perfect for the role of Sofia’s mom.

What a missed opportunity!
