ABC has confirmed to Zap2it that Batt will be guest starring on the show as a possible love interest for Michael Urie’s character, Marc.
According to TV Guide, Batt will play a soap opera actor who Amanda tries to set Marc up with.
On “Mad Men,” he played the closeted Salvatore Romano, the art director at Sterling Cooper. Sal was terminated after he didn’t give in to the sexual advances made by the son of one of their biggest clients.
Batt’s rep tells us that he is still not signed on for the next season of “Mad Men.”
Coincidentally, Batt’s “Mad Men” costar, Rich Sommer, is guest starring in tonight’s episode of “Ugly Betty.”
