Jamie-Lynn Sigler to Recur on Ugly Betty as Daniel Meade's New Assistant

Jamie-Lynn Sigler Gives Ugly Betty an Assist

Since the start of Ugly Betty, Betty has been Daniel Meade's faithful assistant, rescuing him from all manner of scrapes (even if she causes a few problems of her own along the way). But now that she's been promoted, who will lend Daniel a hand — especially as he's grieving?

Turns out, Meadow Soprano is headed to Mode. Jamie-Lynn Sigler, best known for her role on The Sopranos, will appear on the show in the Fall as Natalie, Daniel's new right-hand gal. The "sexy, spiritual, fun" Natalie will be a recurring character in the show's fourth season, starting with the season premiere.

This news gives me some hope for Betty's sake. I'd been afraid that the show would immediately find a way for her to be Daniel's assistant again, but it looks like she'll actually get to make a real go of things as a features editor. And this description of Natalie — specifically the "sexy" and the "spiritual" — makes me wonder if she'll be the one Daniel really leans on as he deals with Molly's loss.

Are you glad Daniel's getting a new assistant? And how do you think Sigler will do in the role?
