Jesse Metcalfe: Returning to Desperate Housewives

by at . Comments

Drea de Matteo might be bringing some attitude to season six of Desperate Housewives, but Jesse Metcalfe is bringing the hotness.

The actor will reprise his role of John Rowland, Gabrielle's boy toy from season one, on this fall's third and fourth episodes.

The character was last seen in 2007, when John married the daughter of a wealthy businessman.

“Now he’s divorced and doing well in a different industry,” creator Marc Cherry told TV Guide Magazine, adding that Gaby’s husband, Carlos, won't be very pleased to learn that John is single again.

Classic Housewives

However, this time it’s not necessarily Gaby about whom Carlos has to worry; it's his niece, Ana (Maiara Walsh).

“When Ana finds out that Gabrielle had an affair with John, she sets her sights on him, which upsets Gabrielle," said Cherry.
