Ugly Betty has a crush, but that doesn't mean there isn't room for a new love interest.

Daniel Eric Gold may be arriving as fresh blood for America Ferrera's Betty, who takes a shine to him after they meet at YETI (Young Editors' Training Institute). Gold's aspiring wordsmith may be harboring a big secret that could have major impact on Betty's life, EW's Michael Ausiello reports.

Before his rumored Betty gig, Gold was in Charlie Wilson's War alongside Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts, as well as the Ryan Reynolds rom-com Definitely, Maybe.

What will his arrival on Ugly Betty mean for the soulful strummer, Jesse? It sounds like the intrigue is heating up.
