Becki Newton on 'Love Bites' vs. 'Ugly Betty'
Zap2it caught up with Becki at NBC's Upfront presentation in New York City on Monday (May 17). Newton says that Annie, her "Love Bites" character, is different from Amanda "in every way. She has self-respect. She doesn't wear clothing that's too small for her, and in general is a hopeless romantic, so it's actually polar opposite."
Ever the diplomat, Newton makes sure to add, "I love them both equally."
"Bites" is an anthology-style show, which is a gamble for NBC since the format hasn't been seen on broadcast before. The hour-long episodes will round out NBC's Thursday comedy line-up, which has been its strongest night.
We're hoping Newton brings the same spark and spunk to Annie that she brought to "Ugly Betty's" Amanda... even if Annie doesn't have the same level of, uh, experience.
