"Ugly Betty" Spoilers: Marc's Boyfriend Cast, Plus Wilhelmina's Meade Wedding?
The producers of "Ugly Betty" have found the actor who will play Marc St. James' boyfriend on the upcoming 2nd season of the ABC comedy. Take a look at him, after the jump. Plus, is Wilhelmina finally marrying into the Meade family?
Actor David Blue whose previous credits include guest starring stints on "Veronica Mars," "Scrubs," and "Dirt" has landed a recurring role on ABC's fashion business-based comedy "Ugly Betty."
Blue will play Cliff, a young photographer who gets a job at Mode Magazine and becomes a romantic interest for Wilhelmina Slater's (Vanessa Williams) conniving assistant Marc St. James (Michael Urie). Both Urie and Blue have a degree in acting.
Meanwhile, TV Guide is reporting Wilhelmina's own personal life takes a spin when she goes down the aisle and gets married. But who is the lucky groom? Have Mrs. Slater's efforts to seduce foot-fetishista Bradford Meade finally paid off?
According to the online magazine, Victoria Becham is supposed to make a cameo appearance as herself at the wedding banquet (rumors about her appearance have circulated around the Internet for months).
Posh is however experiencing trouble with her work permit in the US and might not appear in the episode after all. The show dealt with the same issue when actress Angelica Vale who plays Betty in the Colombian version of the show appeared in the first season finale.
Also, we have learned that papa Suarez is still in Mexico when the 2nd season begins in late September. Ignacio is eager to reunite with his family, but it may be a while before we see him in the Suarez kitchen.
The show's dynamic duo Marc and Amanda will turn Fey Sommers' secret room they had discovered last May into their very own clubhouse. According to Becki Newton and Michael Urie who play them, the scheming duo will not be very successful at those games they like to play in the season ahead.
Finally, although no one knows whether Santos survives the convenience store holdup or not, actress Ana Ortiz who plays Betty's sister, said to TV Guide: "Hilda will grieve quickly (in TV's accelerated time) and begin dating soon." Draw your own conclusions.
Now, here's an official ABC video about the filming of the "Ugly Betty" Season 2 promo campaign "Brighter, Bolder, Bettyer" along with the 60-second promo itself.
