Things are about to get a little Ugly and Devious on Marry Me.

Ana Ortiz—the former Ugly Betty star who’s a regular on Devious Maids—has signed on to play a recurring character on the NBC romantic comedy, EW has learned exclusively.

The actress will assume the role of Hailey, the sexy, quippy new love interest of Kay (Tymberlee Hill). Hailey is described as someone who can “hold her own with the gang.”

Ortiz, whose recent guest credits include the ABC dramas How to Get Away with Murder and Revenge, will first appear on Marry Me next month. Also popping up in January is guest star Jerry O’Connell, who is not a fan of Annie (Casey Wilson).
