America Ferrera, most commonly associated with her Ugly Betty role as Betty Suarez, is heading for the West End stage, reports state. The Latina actress who wowed critics and the public with her breakout role in “Real Women Have Curves” is now looking to expand her GV with the role of Roxie Hart in the long running musical “Chicago,” come November 7th.
Ferrera appears to be looking to shed her four-year small-screen stint altogether, along with a bevy of weight she has already left behind, by donning the skimpy costume of a scheming murderess wanna-be performer most notably played by Renee Zellweger in the big screen adaptation of the Fosse choreographed musical.
We don’t know what this makes y’all think but we sure as hell didn’t know Ms. Thing could dance and sing!
“Deep in rehearsals,” Ferrera’s Facebook page presently proclaims.
But if Ashley Simpson can give it a twirl why not Betty?
And that ain’t where her stage ambitions end.
She is presently slated to star on the Great White Way in the revival of “The Miss Firecracker Contest,” presently scheduled for the 2012 season.
We wish the Emmy winning actress all the bestest. ‘Break a leg girl!’
While we here at RTnM are seriously true blue over the pending end of “Ugly Betty,” I am most happy to hear that Ana Ortiz is reportedly signed on to appear in another ABC project titled “True Blue,” currently set to film pilot episodes in San Francisco along with Scott Foley.
The show will deal with a team of detectives who reunite to solve a murder.
This marks an addition to Ortiz’s animated voice spot on “Noah’s Ark: A New Beginning.”
we are not happy about this new venture taking her out of The Big Apple, but at least I know that she will continue to grace my flat screen.
Congrats to the sassy Latina! We couldn’t be more thrilled and always knew she’d land a new gig!
I have said it before and its shall be repeated – I love me some Ana Ortiz. She is a breadth of sunshine every time she walks into a room. There is no one sweeter.
So when I got a call asking me to cover the Pampers’ Dry Max Launch in Chelsea last night, which listed the Ugly Betty star as a guest, I couldn’t but say yes and head on down. Sue me, I’m a simple homo.
And to add icing on the cake, there was an endless stream of babies! Seriously, I was surrounded by dozens of toddlers.
Now, for some folks this can be torture. But the other thing I love is a baby. They always have that new baby smell and pudgy cheeks that make you want to smother them in kisses and do cartwheels to get a laugh out of them. And before you go poking fun at this fact, I will tell you that I feel no shame in admitting that a baby is the one thing that can get me to forego some booty! (What can I tell you, a kid is more rewarding and better company!)
Other notable guest: Eric Mabius, Padma Lakshmi, Marcia Gay Harden, Barbara Bermudo, Gabriel Soto and Olympians: Chad Hedrick and Noelle Pikus Pace.
So all in all, I consider the evening well spent!
When last nights kiss between Mark Indelicato and Ryan McGinnis happened on Ugly Betty, I was floored! For real, my jaw dropped and a gasp could be heard from my living room. Not because it was a gay on-screen moment, but because these twinks have gotten more action than I have seen in a few full moons!
Now before you get it all twisted further I ain’t holding this genuinely authentic depiction of “discovery” against anyone – least of all the actors. If anything I’d hold this against the writers and producers! Perhaps if they had taken more brazen steps like this one, in the four year run of the show, this wouldn’t be Betty’s last season! Dumbasses.
Seriously, where was Michael Urie’s on-screen kiss instead of a hug? WTF… Who does that?
The moment was sweet and I am happy to report that, by the looks of this exclusive pic shot a few days ago on location in the West Village, McGinnis’ character – Austin – is a continuing storyline that may very well go into the season’s finale.
Kudos to the duo for this representation of young love!
Just who the hell do you suppose this mystery guest is on the “Ugly Betty” set yesterday? They bobbed and weaved so as to keep me from figuring it out – at first. But in the end I professed my love and got the shot!
I’m presently sworn to temporary secrecy and cannot divulge – in my head I swear they know where I live and will be paying me a visit. But it shouldn’t be to hard to figure out Clark Kent’s secret identity…
My favorite reason for turning on my flat pannel is fast gearing to wrap filming on its last season and I imagine there will be tons more surprises come end of the show!
I continue to be wrecked over the news of the shows abrupt end and curse the suits at ABC filthy for not recanting this heinus injustice.
I have a big ole crush on Christopher Gorham! Beautiful brown eyes, broad shouldered, lean physique and upon donning a pair of specs (yeah, I know it was just for his Ugly Betty role,) he transforms into a Clark Kent archetype. He is the perfect specimen and gives me the vapors!
With that disclosure, I can fully admit that his scheduled attendance at last nights USA Network & Vanity Fair “Character Approved” party was enuf to get my ass to venture out into the wet and slippery Chelsea streets. (My crushes know no bounds…)
Hell if I wouldn’t do more than that to experience his smile!
Gorham is presently costarring in “Covert Affairs,” opposite Piper Perabo and Peter Gallagher. And I am most pleased to know that, in addition to this, he is set to star in various other 2010 projects presently listed as being in post-production, including “Somebody’s Hero,” (he is already mine!,) “Trivial Pursuits,” and “My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend.”
I just hope that one of these 2010 productions will take the liberty of exploiting his well toned frame – something I am most thankful to Betty for having done briefly! I sure could do with more though…
Ugly Betty has been canceled, reports USA Today. As if ABC’s constant interruption of my favorite reason to turn on my flat screen wasn’t enough, they have now gone and made some executive suit decision to make the fourth season its last!
This is by far the worst way to start a new decade for Betty fans – including myself.
Stars America Ferrera, Vanessa Williams, Michael Urie, Becki Newton and my favorite – Ana Ortiz, are being afforded 20 episodes on its new Wednesday night slot to bring closure to its four year run.
“We’ve mutually come to the difficult decision to make this Ugly Betty’s final season, and are announcing now as we want to allow the show ample time to write a satisfying conclusion,” ABC chief Steve McPherson says in a statement.
Punk ass bitch! I wish he would say this to my face!
I have been suspecting this was an impending outcome to having its original Thursday night slot switched to Fridays prior to relocating it to Wednesdays. But with so little of interest on that air it strikes a blow to my remote that I don’t see it recovering from for quite sometime.
I call for starting a “Save Betty” facebook page to demand the network retract its cancellation of one of the most colorful shows on the air present day.
Don’t get me wrong, I know that the show arrived with a built in expiration date as it mirrored its “Betty la Fea” novela spin-off with Betty ultimately achieving a full transformation from ugly duckling into a swan but I AM NOT READY, Damnit!
One second I am looking around trying to figure out where everybody was and presto – Ortiz popped up like a scene out of Bewitched, looking like her pregnancy was all make believe and she was now moving on out on the town in her characters trademark form fitting attire and knee-high boots and leopard print coat. Seriously, girl has no baby-weight left!
But as if this wasn’t enough to brighten an otherwise gray cloudy day, I blinked and Adam Rodriguez surfaced. I thought his time on the show had come and gone, leaving a trail of wet panties alongside my couch.
Apparently his guest starring role as her on-screen one-time love interest that “could’a been Justin’s father,” looking as lickable as he does is carrying on…
I can’t speak for that whole plot line, girl, but he can come be my papi anytime! Send him over chica.
Imagine my chilled shock when a sun kissed Newton sashayed into the space looking dapper in a her black and white ensemble! Just as the rest of us poor Joe’s are starting to look Irish from the frost hitting the big apple girlfriend and her cast mates get to sport fresh color.
