Pilot Scoop: Ugly Betty Alum Becki Newton Lands Starring Role in Fox Comedy Weird Loners

Becki NewtonUgly Betty vet Becki Newton is heading back to Fox as one of the stars of Weird Loners, a half-hour comedy pilot about four relationship-phobic people who are unexpectedly thrust into one another’s lives in a townhouse in Queens, NY, TVLine has learned.

Newton, who starred in last season’s short-lived Fox comedy The Goodwin Games, will play Caryn Goldfarb, a smart, attractive, high-strung, dental hygienist who is a pushover where handsome, charming men are concerned, but who always comes on too strong and fast for any relationship to last.

As we reported earlier this month, one of the other four loners will be played by Happy Endings‘ Zachary Knighton.

King of Queens scribe Michael Weithorn penned the script.

    Does this means that Goodwin Games is canceled….. Just kidding. But I thought that was a good show

  2. Jay says:

    so I’m guessing a mid-season replacement that is burnt off over summer?

    Glad she is doing something new but she should leave the sitcom genre and start play different roles. She can do much better!

  4. C.A.BOLTON says:

    Glad to see her back. She was great on Ugly Betty.

  5. DavidSask says:

    Sadly this looks like another failed show for Becky!

    This girl really really deserves a break. She put a great new spin on what could have been a typically boring “dumb blonde” character in Ugly Betty and made Amanda into one of the genuine highlights of the show.

    It really saddens me that she hasn’t had much luck since that role. (The same can be said most of that great cast actually!) :(

  7. Weird Loners was already ordered to series…

  8. I really like it whenever people come together and share views.
    Great website, stick with it!
