Adam Rodriguez thought this would be the season he would wrap up Eric Delko’s story on “CSI: Miami.” He’s been coming in and out on a part-time basis after failing to reach a contract agreement last year.
But, after some negotiation (and fan agitation), Rodriguez recently signed to return to “CSI: Miami” full-time next season, so the only character he’s currently wrapping up is Bobby Talercio on ABC’s “Ugly Betty,” airing its final season on Wednesdays.
“I’m telling you,” Rodriguez tells Zap2it, “my love life on television could not be better. I’m getting married on ‘Ugly Betty,’ I believe, in the second-to-last episode of the season. We haven’t shot the wedding yet. They’re actually shopping for it right now.”
Talercio came into the storyline last fall as a drivers ed teacher, a former bad boy who dated Betty’s (America Ferrera) sister, Hilda (Ana Ortiz), in high school. While Betty briefly nurtured hopes that she might have a chance with Bobby, in the end, he only had eyes for Hilda.
Asked where the wedding might be filmed, Rodriguez says, “I don’t know. If I had to guess, we’ll probably shoot it on the stage, but maybe not. Hopefully we’ll have some cool New York location.
“The Suarez family is a fun family, so I’m sure the wedding is going to be interesting. And the Talercios are no bargain.”
Describing himself as a “hopeless romantic,” Rodriguez doesn’t anticipate wedding bells anytime soon on “CSI: Miami,” but for all the ‘shippers out there, he is working on a nickname for the pairing of Calleigh Duquesne (pronounced “du-cane”) and Eric Delko.
“Hmmm,” he said, “that’s a tough combination. DelQuesne, maybe? DelQuesne?”
