Desperate Housewives Adds Another Orson

by at . Comments

Sorry, Kyle Maclachlan. Your Orson Hodge is no longer the only man with that first name on Wisteria Lane.

As first reported by TV Guide Magazine, Orson Bean has landed the the recurring role of Roy on Desperate Housewives.

This 81-year old actor's character will be Karen McCluskey’s new - and equally antagonistic - boyfriend.

Series Creator Marc Cherry said we can expect Roy to “stick around for awhile" on the show. He's just the latest to join the cast of this ever-expanding hit.

In the last two weeks alone, Jeffrey Nordling and Beau Mirchoff have been added to the drama, while Jesse Metcalfe will return for a couple episodes.

Why they are allowing this bigot, sick homophobic fundamentalist, B' Actor anywhere near a set is utterly obscene and unforgivable. We will no longer be watching the series.
