There's a new man on Wisteria Lane, and he looks an awful lot like Neal McDonough.
The star of Sci Fi's "Tin Man" is joining the cast of ABC's "Desperate Housewives" for its fifth season. He'll be a regular on the show, according to The Hollywood Reporter, playing a white-collar type who moves into the neighborhood.
He'll also be a possible love interest for Edie Britt (Nicollette Sheridan), last seen driving away after being frozen out by the rest of the housewives in the season's penultimate episode. Sheridan didn't appear in the season finale, but her absence from the show apparently won't be a prolonged one.
McDonough will be one of two new male characters on "Desperate Housewives" next season, which jumped five years into the future in May's finale. Gale Harold ("Queer As Folk," "Vanished") will have a recurring part as Ken, the guy who was kissing Susan ( Teri Hatcher) as the episode ended.
McDonough's TV credits include "Band of Brothers," "Boomtown," "Traveler" and "Medical Investigation." On the big screen, he's appeared in "88 Minutes," "Flags of Our Fathers" and "Minority Report."Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
