Adam Rodriguez joins “Ugly Betty”

Adam Rodriguez will join the cast of “Ugly Betty” this season, has learned exclusively.

[…] Rodriguez will play Bobby, an old flame of Betty’s sister Hilda. “He’s an old high school boyfriend, and [he comes] back into their lives,” said Rodriguez, who was in New York promoting his role in Tyler Perry’s I Can Do Bad All By Myself. “A little romance buds, and there’s some drama to go along with it.”

Rodriguez was coy about who — Hilda or Betty — is involved in the romance. “Maybe a little bit of both,” he said with a laugh. “We’ll see how it turns out, but it’s going to be a lot of fun and it’s really funny.”

Rodriguez will definitely appear in five episodes, but his stay on Betty is likely to be extended, according to a source. […]

The new season of “Ugly Betty” premiers on October 9, 2009 at 8/7c on ABC.
