A day after Desperate Housewives concluded its most recent season, there's plenty of casting news to report:
- Drea de Matteo is out.
- So is Dana Delany, as her new ABC series, Body of Evidence, has been picked up.
- Mark Moses is back.
Producer Bob Daily tells Zap2It that the series isn't done adding her cast members, though.
"We haven't really figured out what that person is," he said. "What we're looking for is sort of a provocateur, a muckraker. We've had a couple different people filling that role over the years. When Dana Delany joined, her function was partially to sort of stir things up a little bit. I think that's really what we're looking for."
Rumors, meanwhile, actually point to Vanessa Williams taking on a role next season. The former, beloved Ugly Betty star is looking for a job, after all.
"We love Vanessa Williams and I knew her name has been floated," said Daily. "If she were available, we would certainly be interested in talking to her."
Could you see Williams moving onto The Lane? Sound like an ideal casting scenario to us!
