Christopher Gorham, America Ferrera, Ugly Betty


Darn all this summer casting news! (Stop reading if you believe that blissful ignorance is best when watching TV.)

Henry's got another job. And by that, we don't mean accounting and single daddyhood in Tucson.

Christopher Gorham, who played America Ferrera's oft-thwarted love interest for the first two seasons of Ugly Betty, has signed on to star in the midseason CBS murder-mystery drama Harper's Island.

And the 33-year-old actor is not signed up for any more Ugly Betty, according to the Hollywood Reporter, which revealed this bittersweet news today.

So does this mean everything's coming up Gio next season?

Um, no. Per the Reporter, Freddy Rodriguez's fired-up sandwich maker is only slated to appear on one episode. (Further bolstering our theory that, instead of choosing between her two well-meaning suitors, Betty chose herself and took a vacation all by her newly independent lonesone following last season's cliffhanger finale.)

Betty's cupboard won't be bare, though—easy-on-the-eyes Val Emmich is coming onboard this season as Jesse, a new love interest for the Mode assistant.

Production on the series has also been uprooted from Los Angeles to New York, where the onscreen action takes place, so it's a fresh start all around for everyone involved.

But for all you Henry fans out there, you're in luck. Not only can you still call yourself a Henry fan—Gorham's Harper's Island character is also named Henry—but the whodunit about guests at a destination wedding who start getting bumped off one at a time also sounds pretty cool.

Gorham plays the groom-to-be who apparently could have used a better wedding planner.
