Fresh off the news that Dana Delaney is in talks to join the cast of "Desperate Housewives," there's some speculation today about who could be playing her character's "much-younger husband" when the family moves to Wisteria Lane. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Nathan Fillion is talking to the network about playing the role.
I was a little late to the Fillion bandwagon, but I loved him in Waitress, and he's still got a ton of fans from his "Firefly" days. Those fans didn't really help out "Drive" this spring, though, so I'm not sure he'd bring a flood of new viewers over to Wisteria Lane. Even in today's cancellation-happy TV world, he and Delaney seem to have an inordinate number of canned shows between them — "Kidnapped," "Related," "Pasadena," "Miss Match." Still, she has an Emmy and he has a following, so maybe together they'd bring a new energy to the show. Lyndsy Fonseca, whom I recognize from a ton of TV guest-starring roles, is reportedly in negotiations to play their daughter.
What do you think? Could Wisteria Lane handle another family? And would Fillion bring any non-"Housewives" fans into the show's fold?
