Liu primps for 'Betty' stint


Lucy Liu has signed on for a two-episode arc on the ABC comedy "Ugly Betty."

She will play Grace Chin, aka the Chin, a previously frumpy college classmate whom Daniel Meade (Eric Mabius) once stood up on a date. When Daniel needs Chin's help with a pressing family matter, he learns that she has a long memory.

Her first episode, "Derailed," will air during the February sweep. Also guest starring in the episode is Jerry O'Connell, who will play Joel, a man Alexis Meade (Rebecca Romijn) meets while slumming in a sports bar with Wilhelmina Slater (Vanessa Williams).
