Lindsay Lohan to Guest Star on Ugly Betty

It's Official: Lindsay Lohan's Getting Ugly



We've been hearing rumors about this for a while — even before the writers' strike — but now it's official: Lindsay Lohan has nabbed a recurring role on Ugly Betty.

She reported for her first day of work on Saturday and will make her debut in the show's season finale on May 22. But that's not all: Lohan will also appear in five episodes next Fall.

Lohan's character — whose name hasn't been revealed yet — was an old classmate of Betty's, a total mean girl (Lohan knows a little something about that). But, according to Variety, when the two meet again, it's Lohan who's down on her luck . . . and perhaps even a little jealous of Betty's burgeoning Mode career. One rumor even indicates that her character would be "a hapless fast food worker" — so if you've always dreamed of hearing Lohan say "would you like fries with that," well, this might just be your chance.

Betty fans, do you think this is a good move for the show? Could you see Lohan making herself at home in the soapy, over-the-top atmosphere? Could this be just the thing to help the show's sagging ratings? Or is it all one big misguided stunt?
