Lindsay Lohan to Guest Star on Ugly Betty

It's Official: Lindsay Lohan's Getting Ugly

We've been hearing rumors about this for a while — even before the writers' strike — but now it's official: Lindsay Lohan has nabbed a recurring role on Ugly Betty.

She reported for her first day of work on Saturday and will make her debut in the show's season finale on May 22. But that's not all: Lohan will also appear in five episodes next Fall.

Lohan's character — whose name hasn't been revealed yet — was an old classmate of Betty's, a total mean girl (Lohan knows a little something about that). But, according to Variety, when the two meet again, it's Lohan who's down on her luck . . . and perhaps even a little jealous of Betty's burgeoning Mode career. One rumor even indicates that her character would be "a hapless fast food worker" — so if you've always dreamed of hearing Lohan say "would you like fries with that," well, this might just be your chance.

Betty fans, do you think this is a good move for the show? Could you see Lohan making herself at home in the soapy, over-the-top atmosphere? Could this be just the thing to help the show's sagging ratings? Or is it all one big misguided stunt?

Not a far stretch in her acting abilities if she's going to play a bitch.

I trust the writers of Ugly Betty, and I look forward to what i hope will be a lite storyline to break up all the over-the-top mellow drama that has been going on with the whole Betty/Henry nonsense.

I think it could be good for Lohan's career and it might boost Ugly Betty's ratings.

I'm with lily8206, I'm over Lindsay and anything she does seems like a stunt. Coupled with the fact that I've been steadily losing interest in Ugly Betty this season- it was one of the shows I almost quit after the strike and I've been forcing myself to make it through for Gio's sake- and I'm not too thrilled. But on the other hand, it's not going to be as awkward as Britney on HIMYM- at least Lindsay can actually act to begin with.

Yawn. I'm so over Lindsay. I definitely don't think this will have the same effect as Britney on HIMYM did!

I Dont watch UB, because i cannot get beyond its campiness, and the obvious fakeness of Americas "get up" Its like watching one of those lifetime movies about the "ugly" girl in school who is obviously not ugly, but the wardrobe people put her in mismatched clothes, big glasses and braces......I just cant waste an hour a week trying to look beyond that.

I liked Lindsay in Mean Girls, so this seems like something she can pull off. Hopefully, this will help out her career.

Actually, I'm pretty happy about this. I doubt viewers will tune in by the thousands just to see her, but they probably won't turn away because she's on. UB does cameos well and LL is the perfect mean girl. Despite her past, she still has potential to be a good actress; hope this works out well all around.

I loved Lohan as a mean girl, if she can pull it off like she did back in the good old days then good for her. I love all the cameos on Betty, it really makes the show fun and interesting.
