First things first: May ABC’s darling comedy Ugly Betty rest in peace. When it signs off at the end of this television season, Betty will have had four up-and-down-and-then-back-up seasons on television. And not for nothing, the show undoubtedly features one of the most talented casts out there, including America Fererra (at left, in Betty’s original iteration in the show’s pilot episode), Eric Mabius, Vanessa Williams, Judith Light, Becki Newton, Michael Urie, and others.
The Hollywood Reporter ran a story today, citing the hot commodity that are these now-free-to-join-pilot-season Ugly Betty actors. Which definitely piqued my interest: What should this cast do next?
Is there a place for Becki Newton’s comedic chops, possibly, on CBS’ hit The Big Bang Theory as a foe to Kaley Cuoco’s Penny? Could she possibly parlay her Betty stint into a What Not to Wear-esque hosting gig on a fashion show? What about Eric Mabius? What kind of a show should he join—or what kind of new show should he headline? Could he go dark and sexy with a turn on True Blood? Will Judith Light head into the world of Lifetime and Hallmark movies? Or what are the possibilities for her? Is America Fererra (who supposedly wants to focus on her film career) too big for television now?
This is where you come in, PopWatchers: Where should these actors go? What should they do? Are there television shows out there that are screaming for Michael Urie and Mark Indelicato’s acting talent? Does Vanessa Williams’ spot-on bitchery belong in the Gossip Girl universe by chance? Tell me in the comments below! And remember: No suggestion is too crazy. Think big! Like Betty big!
