News outlets are reporting that Susan Boyle will join the cast of the hit TV series Ugly Betty in a coming episode. While there's nothing set in stone as of this writing, it can at least be confirmed that Susan Boyle was definitely offered the job and is probably considering it.
The Scottish singer and reality TV star turned internet sensation was first contacted by US television bosses a month ago. The executives think that she will be perfect for the show, which follows the life of another hairy-eyebrowed but lovable wannabe in the fashion industry, Betty (played by America Ferrera).
Sources close to the star stated last night that "Susan has been bombarded with offers of work in America, but this is something she is really keen on and we hope to make happen," and that "She will definitely play herself."
Susan Boyle became an overnight star in the US earlier this year after her audition for the ITV1 talent show Britain's Got Talent, the video of which went viral on the internet. She was supposed to take a plane to America on a promotional tour after the finale of the show last month, but the plans were canceled after she suffered from a breakdown that landed her in the hospital.
The singer spent four days in the Priory clinic after coming in second place in the competition and collapsing with exhaustion. Since then she has missed a string of dates on the Britain's Got Talent tour while waiting to start recording her debut album.
It's unclear when the episode would air if Susan Boyle were to accept the Ugly Betty cameo role. Last night, Susan's spokeswoman told reporters that "Susan has many offers on the table. At the moment she is looking forward to recording her album."
Last weekend, Susan Boyle was just another unknown face in the shadows living alone with her cat - Today, she's a worldwide sensation, as a clip of her singing on the TV show Britain's Got Talent exploded onto the Youtube scene. Not only did Susan Boyle's amazing voice manage to win over the usually cranky American Idol judge Simon Cowell - She touched the hearts of millions everywhere. Susan Boyle's singing is truly a sound to behold.
