Ugly Betty Casting Spoilers

January 17, 2007 by  

Golden Globe winner for Best Comedy, Ugly Betty, will have some new faces popping up at ‘Mode’ this season. Some will be sticking around and some will be just stop by for a little chit chat.

Michael UrieBut before we get to that, let me say CONGRATS to Michael Urie who plays the fabulous Marc on Ugly Betty. He was just recently made a series regular. Depsite his appearance on almost all the episodes to date, he had yet to have that little contract assuring him he had a job to go to everyday. As Marc and Amanda (Becki Newton) have quickly become my favorite part of the show, this thrills me to no end.

Rebecca Romijn As previously reported, Rebecca Romijn will be joining the cast as mysterious woman who has been hiding under all those bandages for months. Again, I thought it was Fey Summers, so I’m intrigued to see who this woman is and what part she will play. And more importantly, how quickly she can get Daniel Meade nekkid and back to his playboy ways. Romijn will first be seen sans bandages on this Thursday’s episode.

Also on Thursday expect to see Kathy Griffin doing her thing as she plays a TV fashion host.

Katherine McPhee It was also announced that American Idol star Katherine McPhee will be making an appearance. She will play herself, but that’s all I know. Can she act? Let’s hope so, because if not it’s going to reek of stunt casting.Speaking of stunt casting, but in the most fabulous way possible. Guess who else will be “working it” on Ugly Betty?

Find out after the jump (so I got a few complaints that people really couldn’t avoid the casting spoilers if I was showing the pics, so I thought I would throw it under the jump to appease those who are anti spoilers)


Tim Gunn to appear on The fabulous Tim Gunn will be ‘making it work’ at Mode Magazine later this season. The true STAR of Project Runway will play a fashion correspondent during Ugly Betty’s fictional fashion week. Gunn is slated to appear on not one, but two episodes, scheduled to air on Feb. 1st and Feb. 8th.

Until that time, Gunn can be found in the L’oreal Hair Salon.

    I have this horrible suspicion that Rebecca Romijn will actually be Daniel’s dead brother, Alex, back from the dead.

    I know. I can’t believe Michael Urie was never a cast regular considering how great and funny he is. Meanwhile, what happened to that photographer guy whose picture is on the main cast website on abc?

    Meanwhile, the Tim Gunn thing ROCKS (though the possibility of him not being on Project Runwa doesn’t).

    OMG. It’s five minutes from the big reveal and I think Sarah is right — I think RR is gonna be Alex back from the dead — or rather from a sex change …
