'Ugly Betty' scoop: Fisher Stevens is Betty's new (spoiler alert)!

ugly-betty-casting_lIs Betty leaving the nest again? Looks that way judging by the following casting scoop…

Sources confirm to me exclusively that Fisher Stevens is joining Ugly Betty in the potentially recurring role of Mr. Z., Betty’s dry, sarcastic new landlord.

In casting the part, Betty producers were looking for a “New York actor who could go head-to-head with America Ferrera.” I’d say the Short Circuit/Early Edition/Numb3rs thesp fits the bill.

Do you agree?

    I’m just so glad you didn’t say love interest! So yay, fun. Looking forward to seeing Betty on her own again.

    Never seen the show, but Fisher Stevens kills whatever he’s in (in a good way). His old show Key West was excellent.

    • Meagan

      I’m so glad someone else remembers that show! I really liked it!

      • Sean

        Key West was an AWESOME show that was cancelled a lil too early.

  • Verity

    So how many episodes will it take before she moves back in with her dad? Place your bets!

    As long as he gets to say Italy (read: it-ley). Love it.

    tkangaroo: You are awesome for saying that!!! I love that movie. “it-ley? It-ley?? She’s only been gone 24 howers”

    Love Fisher Stevens. Excited about this casting. And Ugly Betty needs some excitement.

    I’m happy. He did one episode of Friends and stole the show. Looking forward to this.

    The writers made me so mad when they had Betty move out on her own last season only to have her move back with her father and annoying sister. They better not pull the same stunt this season!

      It’s great news if Betty is getting her own place (again). She has grown up, works hard and has earned the right. I was really bugged last season when her family guilted her into moving back home. I just hope it’s not a hole this time.

  • Stevex

    I cannot believe that Fisher Stevens used to sleep with Michelle Pheiffer. That is so wrong.

  • Booger

    Boo….unless he’s on a skateboard as a maniacal hacker. No, actually, just boo.

  • Anna

    I dont really know who he is but he sounds good lol. I love Ugly Betty this season! UGLY BETTY, FRIDAYS ABC

  • Pekay

    UGH!!! He has always given me the creeps . . . maybe that’s why they hired him . . . creepy landlord with spy holes in the walls, ceiling, and floor!

  • anon
