The offer was made by talent scouts who apparently didn't recognize the Marc St. James of 'Ugly Betty' on a street in Glasgow.
"Ugly Betty" star Michael Urie was offered a role as an extra in Anne Hathaway's new movie after he was spotted by talent scouts in Scotland who didn't recognize the actor. The 29 year old became well known for his role as Marc St. James in the hit American TV show and played the part for four years.
But movie scouts working on Hathaway's new film "One Day", which is currently filming in Scotland, had no idea who Urie was when they cornered him on a street in Glasgow last week. And Urie reveals the clueless film workers offered him a part as an extra, He says, "It was odd. They offered me a part in the Anne Hathaway film but I declined, obviously."
"One Day" itself also stars Jim Sturgess, Romola Garai, Jodie Whittaker, Rafe Spall, Jamie Sives and Ken Stott in addition to Anna Hathaway. It follows Emma, a working-class girl of principle and ambition who dreams of making the world a better place, and Dexter, a wealthy charmer who dreams that the world will be his playground.
