‘Ugly Betty’ Cast Gets Their Grub On

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – For Ugly Betty actor Tony Plana, his favorite time on the set of the series is lunchtime.

Plana – who plays Betty Suarez’s [America Ferrera] loving dad, Ignacio – says he eats like a king every time he goes to work on the set, and wouldn’t trade his lunchtime for anything.

Plana says, “The food they make for us that I’m suppossed to pretend to cook on the show is super good. Sometimes America [Ferrera], Ana [Ortiz], and I don’t even go off to lunch, and we just eat the prop food because it’s fantastic! We all love to eat!”

But Plana admits that sometimes their behind-the-scenes grub sessions get the cast into some trouble.

Plana explains, “We sit there and eat production’s prop food and they get mad at us! They say, ‘Guys, stop eating the food,” and we’re like, ‘Sorry, too late!’”

And while Plana is admittedly better at feasting than cooking, he has still picked up some practical pointers in the Ugly Betty kitchen.

He adds, “I’ve learned how to cook a little, which is kind of fun. I’m even thinking about writing a cookbook by Tony Plana – inspired by Ignacio Suarez and the Ugly Betty prop food!”

Season two of Ugly Betty premieres September 27 on ABC.
