America Ferrera is a Temperamental

America Ferrera visits her Ugly Betty costar Michael Urie at his off-Broadway play The Temperamentals held at the TBG Theatre on Saturday (July 18) in New York City.

“Temperamental” was code for “homosexual” in the early 1950’s, part of a created language of secret words that gay men used to communicate. The Temperamentals tells the story of two men – the communist Harry Hay and the Viennese refugee and designer Rudi Gernreich (Urie) – as they fall in love while building the first gay rights organization. had the pleasure of watching The Tempermentals the same day and is happy to report that Michael gives a great performance — and not just because he strips down to his skivvies! The entire cast is excellent and apparently their off-set chemistry is just as good. After the show, I spotted Michael and his castmates lunching together at Hell’s Kitchen restaurant!

The show plays until August 23rd. For ticket info, visit

Michael Urie: Them Beckham Boys are Brutal!

Ugly Betty star Michael Urie, aka Wilhemina’s assistant Marc St. James, spent some time on the Ugly set with soccer superstar David Beckham and his sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz.

While Victoria filmed her guest spot on Ugly Betty, Urie showed the Beckham boys how to kick someone without really hurting them.

“I showed them how to fake kick someone,” Urie told E! Online. “Then they proceeded to fake kick me. These are soccer spawn, and they could kick—and they didn’t always miss! I spent about a half hour getting kicked by Beckham spawn!”

I guess Victoria kept her word by bringing her hubby on set!

Producer Marco Pennette once joked, “But we want her husband (Becks) on set. It’s one of the requirements.”
