Desperate Housewives Casting For New Characters

at . Comments

Dana Delany is out and Vanessa Williams is in. This much we know about season seven of Desperate Housewives.

Thanks to a new ABC press release, though, viewers can now prepare to welcome a trio of new characters to Wisteria Lane in the fall. They'll include...

  • Maxine: An elderly lady of at least 60 years of age. She's Mike and Susan’s new neighbor in their apartment building. She possesses an unusual job.
  • Beth: A quirky, thirtysomething woman who was Paul Young’s prison pen pal and is now his wife.
  • Keith: Handsome, sexy, 30-year-old contractor.

** Desperate Housewives is also recasting the role of Penny Scavo, Tom and Lynette’s 12-year-old daughter.

Any suggestions on who should take on any of these roles?

Desperate Housewives Quotes

I love you once. I love you twice. I love you more than beans and rice.

Mike

(narrating) The world is filled with good fathers. How do we recongnize them? They are the ones who are missed so terribly, everything falls apart in their absence. (Shot of Andrew and Bree packing his suitcase, placing a photo of Rex inside last.) They are the ones who love us, long before we even arrive. (Shot of Carlos smiling as he rubs Gabrielle's stomach.) They are the ones who come looking for us, when we can't find our way home. (Shot of Mike walking Bongo as he looks at a flyer of Zach's) Yes, the world is filled with good fathers. And the best are the ones who make the women in their lives feel like good mothers (Shot of Tom comforting Lynette as she cries)
