Is Nathan Fillion Getting "Desperate"?

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?
