Some welcome developments on Wisteria Lane: First, says the Hollywood Reporter, Desperate Housewives might get some new blood, in the form of a family prospectively to be played by Dana Delany (reportedly, series creator Marc Cherry’s original choice to play Bree), Nathan Fillion (pictured; apparently, Waitress has done for his career what Firefly/Serenity could not), and 20-year-old Lyndsy Fonseca (who’s also set to play a recurring role on Heroes; maybe her superpower is an ability to be on two shows at once). Delany’s always a welcome presence in TV land, and since Kidnapped was cruelly short-lived, a DH role would be a nice mini-comeback.
Second is the notion floated in Liz Smith’s Variety column that Cherry is mulling a musical episode. I actually think DH would be well-suited to a musical episode, provided the golden throats of our housewives and their fellas are up to it. Smith notes that Teri Hatcher and Nicollette Sheridan have some documented singing experience, and that the others are, at least, pros who’ll do whatever they need to…
Hold the phone, does this mean Edie’s not dead?
How do these developments sound to you, PopWatchers? Eager to see a suburban kickline? And what other shows might benefit from Buffy/Scrubs-style musical episodes?
