Marc Indelicato would have loved to have gotten to know Lindsay Lohan when she shot her Ugly Betty episodes, but it was kinda impossible.

"Everyone has been asking me how Lindsay was, and really all I can say is that there was so much paparazzi that it's really hard to get to know the girl, because they're like all over the place," says Indelicato, who costars as Betty's nephew, Justin, on the hit ABC sitcom. "But she was really nice and was having a lot fun on the set."

Indelicato, as well as most of the rest of the cast, has relocated to New York to shoot the next season of Ugly Betty. And at just 14 years old, this boy has some big dreams—and he's doing what he can to make sure they come true...

First up is a singing career. "I'm working on a demo right now," Indelicato says. "It's pop and techno. It's not super alternative, but it's not quite Jonas Brothers and Hannah Montana."

And then there's a clothing line, specifically jeans for tweens. "I love jeans," he says. "I have a whole five drawers devoted to my jeans. But I know for a lot of kids it's hard to find jeans, because either they're made for adults or they're made for young kids. They are not really that teenager in-between size."

He's already picked a name for his fashion house: Duh Jeans. He explains with a laugh, "What kind of jeans are you wearing? Duh!"

For the short term, Indelicato is happy to be back on the East Coast. He and his family ditched their native Philadelphia for Los Angeles when he signed on to Betty. "New York is so much fun," Indelicato says. "I mean, winter and summer aren't really good, but fall and spring are nice."
