It’s not Tom Verica, but it’s (kinda-sorta) close.
Desperate Housewives has tapped Gail O’Grady’s former American Dreams co-star, Peter Onorati, to join the cast as the husband of her soon-to-be-introduced cougar character, sources confirm to me exclusively.
Onorati, who played Dom* in five episodes of Dreams, is probably best known for his role as divorce attorney Charlie Howell in Steven Bochco’s early ’90s legal drama Civil Wars. He’ll appear on Housewives on a recurring basis.
* Extra credit if you can remember who Dom was and what connection (if any) he had to the Pryor clan.
