According to the Post, Ugly Betty star Ana Ortiz (she plays Betty's sister) has joined the campaign against the 17-story Dock Street Dumbo building plan. Updating our scorecards, it looks like Dock Street is now second to only the Hudson Square Tower o' Garbage for most star-studded opposition. Dock Street: Ortiz, Gabriel Byrne, Helen Hunt, Gary Sinise, Ken Burns, Ana Gasteyer and Skipp Sudduth (Third Watch and various stage productions). Garbage Garage: James Gandolfini, Lou Reed, Laurie Anderson, Michael Stipe, Kirsten Dunst, Casey Affleck, Paul Bettany, Jennifer Connelly and John Slattery (Mad Men). We leaving anyone out? [NYPost]
