Holy Ugly Betty casting news!
The ABC series may be moving to Fridays in the fall, but it isn't going quietly.
First, it looks like Paula Abdul's first post-American Idol role will actually be to guest star on the show. Sources have confirmed to Michael Ausiello that the wakcy former judge will be playing a new temp at Mode. Look for her to bond with Amanda.
Which of these guest stars are you more excited about?
Meanwhile, America's Next Top Model cycle three runner-up, Yaya Dacosta, has also nabbed a key part.
The polarizing, part-time actress will take over the recurring role of Wilhelmina’s daughter Nico, a role originated by Jowharah Jones. Dacost will debut on the October 9 season premiere.
She's previously appeared on All My Children.
** UPDATE: ABC has now confirmed that Abdul will NOT appear on Ugly Betty after all.
