It's official: Lindsay Lohan to guest on Ugly Betty finale
First How I Met Your Mother went for ratings gold by casting Britney Spears in an episode (and another). Ugly Betty is following suit - with none other than Hollywood's poster child for poor choices and bad ideas: Lindsay Lohan.
Rich actually reported on this way back in November, but nothing came together. Blame the WGA Strike or the frequent trips to rehab ... take your pick. Variety has now confirmed that Li Lo will guest star in the upcoming Ugly Betty finale. But it doesn't stop there. The original plan for her arc to span three episodes has been upped to six. So she's going to return next season for five more. Lohan will play an old schoolmate of Betty's. The catch? Apparently she used to be a real bitch to the now successful Miss Suarez. Lohan's character is down on her luck, and Betty being the nice gal that she is, can't help but lend a hand.
This strikes me as a bit odd. I only casually follow this show, but it seems like ever since the show's regime change, things have been a bit shaky. The casting of someone like Lindsay Lohan just doesn't seem right to me. Thoughts?
