HBO confirms to Zap2it that Grant Bowler — Wilhelmina Slater (Vanessa William)’s once-boyfriend Connor Owens on “Ugly Betty” — will play a werewolf, the ringleader of a biker gang.

The network says actor Theo Alexander — whom you may recognize from small roles on “Pushing Daisies,” “Chuck” and “CSI: New York” — has also been hired. He will play the love interest of Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare), aka the vampire king of Mississippi.

Both characters will reportedly pack a little bite… apart from, you know, any actual biting…
