If she's half as funny as she was on Arrested Development, we'll be tuning in...

Liza Minnelli has landed a recurring role on Ugly Betty. As first reported by Fox News, the veteran actress will recur on the ABC as Lena Korvinka, Mark Indelicato's high school drama teacher.

"There were massive rumors last year, then again in early January that Liza was being courted for the show, but Liza originally hadn't planned to do [it]," said an insider, adding:

Ugly Betty producers presented her with a great offer and a hilarious story and they kept coming back to her. She's going to be playing an outrageous drama teacher and it is going to be fun! Liza is excited to be playing another off-the-wall character like Lucille 2 on Arrested Development."
