BWW TV: Aaron Tveit Guest Stars on UGLY BETTY
Next to Normal star Aaron Tveit will guest star on UGLY BETTY on March 17th and BroadwayWorld.com has a preview clip from the episode!
The episode, "All the World's a Stage" surrounds Justin's love with his acting class, helmed by the eccentric Lena Korvinka (Carol Kane), and finds himself in an unexpected triangle with his new pals, Austin and Lily. When Betty drops by class, she's smitten with a cool young playwright, Zachary (Aaron Tveit), whom she will profile for Mode. But she challenges her own ethics when she starts dating him. And Wilhemina is hospitalized with a perforated ulcer, and can't help her type-A personality even when bedridden, but then her roommate, Roberta (Dana Ivey), prompts an epiphany, on "Ugly Betty."
Emmy Award winning, veteran actress Carol Kane continues to appear regularly on both the big screen and television shows. She was a frequent and always colorful guest such shows as "Ellen" and "Hey Arnold" and has contributed her distinctive voice to an episode of "The Family Guy." Kane's many film credits include Man on the Moon, Scrooged, The PallBearer, My Blue Heaven, The Princess Bride, Dog Day Afternoon and Jawbreaker.
