Vanessa Williams' Brother Cast as Her 'Ugly Betty' Drag


Chris Williams


Looking for an actor who resembles Wilhelmina Slater, the show did not look far beyond Chris Williams.

"Ugly Betty" is doing a family casting once again after previously hiring Becki Newton's real-life brother Matt Newton to play the role of the uber-hot Troy. This time, the comedy series is welcoming Chris Williams, who by the last name, is known as the brother of Vanessa Williams aka Wilhelmina Slater.

Entertainment Weekly that got the scoop said Chris will be featured in an early 2010 episode as Willie's "drag queen doppelganger, Wilhediva Hater." According to a tipster, Willie is hearing that someone is impersonating her regularly as a drag in a club. Trying to shut the act down, she realizes that the impersonator could sub for her during meetings and events. They end up working together.

Chris Williams, although not as established as his sister, has starred in a lot of TV series and feature films. Naming some are "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation", "Californication", "Scary Movie 4", and "Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story".

"Ugly Betty" is currently on hiatus but will be back with a better time slot on Wednesday, January 6 at 10/9c.
