More casting news for Ugly Betty has come our way, and it looks like quite an interesting development in our heroine's life. According to Michael Ausiello of Entertainment Weekly, the series will be welcoming actor Aaron Tveit as its guest star soon.
We know you're wondering what role he'll be playing, but it's a rather vital piece of information we can't give away that easily. So let's step away from Nietzsche's "live dangerously!" maxim and play it safe first. We're warning you:
Possible spoiler below!
The report goes on to say that Aaron Tveit, who was previously seen on Gossip Girl, will be portraying a playwright on this ABC comedy. What's more, he'll be going on a date with Betty (America Ferrera) in an upcoming episode airing in March.
It doesn't mean he's the new guy in Betty's life and that this will lead to wedding bells for the two of them though. An inside source revealed, "The relationship starts great and ends horribly." Familiar when it comes to this show, isn't it? Or maybe it's a spillover from Gossip Girl?
Either way, we can't wait to see Betty give romance another go. With stage and film actor Aaron Tveit joining in, it's bound to be overwhelming.
The guy's had quite a lot of theatre credits listed, debuting on Broadway in 2006. He's been on the national tour of Rent, in a musical adaptation of The Three Musketeers and on several off-Broadway shows. He's also starred in a couple of movies, such as Ghost Town and the upcoming film about poet Allen Ginsberg, Howl.
Despite that exciting bit of casting news, it looks like there really is no hope for another Ugly Betty run. ABC's cancellation of it doesn't even allow the show to move to a different network. Besides, the writers aren't gunning for that either.
We only have the next few episodes of Ugly Betty to look forward to then. In addition to the presence of Aaron Tveit, that is.
