Looking for a fresh start after her split from Orson, Desperate Housewives’ Bree (Marcia Cross) hires a hunky handyman—played by 90210’s Brian Austin Green—to spruce up her, ahem, house.
“Bree has an instant physical attraction to him,” explains executive producer Bob Daly of Green’s character, who is introduced in the ABC soap’s seventh-season premiere on Sept. 26. “But then over time it turns into something more.”
Unfortunately for Bree, her boy toy has also caught the eye of
Wisteria Lane’s newest cougar, Renee (Ugly Betty’s Vanessa Williams). “Suddenly by episode 4 they’re both going after him,” says Daly. “So there’s a little competition for Brian Austin Green.”
