Start praying that the strike ends real soon, because The New York Observer reports Lindsay Lohan is “in serious talks” to appear on Ugly Betty.

“Everyone’s very excited,” the source said. “Of course, it brings a lot of attention to the show, and it’s a great part for Lindsay.”

It would be for a three-episode arc with Betty helping Lindsay, who has fallen on rough times since high school.

A case of art imitating life, if you will.
