Brian Stokes Mitchell to appear on Ugly Betty

Brian Stokes MitchellDespite low ratings, Ugly Betty is pushing ownward. Now, Tony winner Brian Stokes Mitchell will have a potentially recurring role on Ugly Betty as a former lover of Wilhelmia (played by Vanessa Williams) who is apparently a Joe Six Pack rather than an elegant charmer.

Seriously, I've seen Mr. Stokes Mitchell (or it is just Mr. Mitchell?) perform on Broadway and he's very good. His voice has this unmistakable deep, dulcet tone that would translate well to a television romantic lead. Mitchell has appeared on television before as Dr. Jackpot Jackson in Trapper John, M.D.

It makes sense that a show like Ugly Betty would even tap Broadway actors for guest stars, as the show seems geared towards people that like theater. They even had an entire episode where the plot revolved around the Broadway show Wicked.

Mind you, Ugly Betty has been supplanted by shows like Glee for that particular demographic, so I don't even know how long it will last. In the meanwhile, fans can enjoy their Brian Stokes Mitchell.

Mitchell also had a recurring role on Frasier, as the man who had the apartment directly above Frasier's, and with whom Frasier had a rivalry.
