Is Nathan Fillion Getting "Desperate"?

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?

I think this would bring a good element to the show. I love Desperate Housewives, but I don't know where they're going with it next season.

He would be a perfect addition to DH. I love " 2 Guys, A Girl And a Pizza Place." Plus it had my other fave - Ryan Reynolds. I love Nathan's film "Slither", it mixes comedy and a campy- horror film perfectly.

Many years ago he was on One Life to Live as Joey and he was dating Dorian who was probably at least 30 years older than him! I think my sister fell in love with him that summer!

I agree Sassette, I think he would be much more suited for Heroes or Lost. Desperate Housewives is no longer a great show; no one should be subject to acting with Eva "annoying" Longoria.

Also... Why can't the Heroes producers write him a part?! That would be so much better! Two great tastes that taste great together! (I'd settle for seeing more of him on Lost, too.)

I love Nathan Fillion (he was the only thing that made Drive watchable and I love Serenity/Firefly!)... his presence might be enough to make me give Desperate Housewives another try. But he deserves so much better!

CaterpillarGirl, You don't have a clue. Nathan Fillion is awesome. 'Drive' was just too terribly boring and contrived of a 'vehicle' to really showcase his talents. He's bound to be an amazing addition to any project. And he more than did a great job in Firefly. You can blame Fox execs for that one.

Oh be still my heart. I love him so much, since buffy and firefly. I'd watch him in anything, especially if he was shirtless.

he just doesnt have the face or the talent to hold a show, maybe as a supporting character but never as a leading. I loved him in Buffy, he was terrible in firefly, Drive was the same boring thing. now its desperate housewives? egad
