One of the stars of “Devious Maids” will be appearing on the NBC comedy series “Marry Me” for a multi-episode guest stint. Read on for the latest about this show.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Latina actress Ana Ortiz will be dropping by the NBC comedy for a series of guest appearances. The actress will be playing the role of Hailey, the latest love interest of the lesbian character Kay (Tymberlee Hill). Her character is described as “sexy, quippy and someone who can hold her own with the gang.”
Ortiz has been making the rounds on various network shows, as she was also seen in one episode of “How to Get Away with Murder” and “Revenge.” The actress has also booked a guest spot on the family comedy show “Black-ish” as we reported in November.
For “Marry Me,” expect to see Ortiz’s first guesting in January. Coincidentally, the show did mention of Ortiz’s “Devious Maids” in the recent episode as part of a quip.
The series will also have Jerry O’Connell as guest in an upcoming episode slated for January. In its most recent episode, the show had Nat Faxon as guest.
“Marry Me” stars Casey Wilson and Ken Marino as the couple Annie and Jake. They have been dating for six years. During a romantic vacation in Mexico, Annie was expecting that Jake would already pop the question. But it didn’t happen and the actual proposal became a hot mess. But now that the couple was able to work it out, they are on their way to making the preparations for the wedding.
The show also stars John Gemberling, Sarah Wright, Tim Meadows and John Bucatinsky.
“Marry Me” is created by David Caspe and produced by FanFare Productions and Sony Pictures Television. NBC has given the series 18 episodes for its freshman run.
“Marry Me” is loosely based on Caspe and Wilson’s engagement. The two met on the set of “Happy Endings,” which Caspe produced and where Wilson was one of the actresses. Following a three-year relationship, the couple decided to tie the knot in May 2014 and will soon be expecting the birth of their first child.
