On ABC's hit Ugly Betty, the 26-year-old Texas native plays Marc, the adorably catty assistant/sidekick to ruthless editor Wilhelmina (Vanessa Williams).

ON LIFE BEFORE BETTY I was acting in an off-off-Broadway play that was one step away from off-off-awful.

ON DRESSING AS MARC The clothes aren't uncomfortable, but they're tight. I truly believe if anyone in the world from Dom DeLuise to George Bush were to wear the clothes I wear, they would walk and talk the way Marc does.

ON HIS OWN FASHION SENSE I'm not a fashion expert but I play one on TV. I'm totally into jeans and T-shirts, although I wear more colors now than I used to. My fashion awareness has increased. I'm not sure my fashion sense has.

ON TEAMING WITH WILLIAMS She's the best. She's totally the Wicked Witch and I'm the Flying Monkey.
