SALMA HAYEK ON BETTY

After bringing the prime-time ABC smash Ugly Betty to the small screen earlier this fall, executive producer Salma Hayek says she's now decided to star in the weekly series. It has not yet been confirmed when her stint will start, but ABC says that her character—"a Mode newcomer"—will "leave a lasting impression on Daniel Meade (Eric Mabius) and Betty Suarez (America Ferrera)." The upcoming appearance will mark Hayek's return to the prime-time TV scene, as she was last seen in 1993 serving as a regular for one month on The Sinbad Show.
