As previously reported, all will not be well for Tom and Lynette when we see them again on Desperate Housewives. The couple will be separated, and the former will even find himself a new girlfriend...

... to be played by Jessica Hecht, TV Line confirms.

The actress, best known for her role on Friends as Ross' ex-wife's lesbian lover, and more recently seen on Bored to Death and Breaking Bad, will come on board the show's final season as Jane.

Look for her to have an attractive daughter who may or may not get involved with Tom's son. And, by that of course, we mean she most definitely will.

UPDATE: Andrea Parker (Less Than Perfect) has actually nabbed the role. Negotiations with Hecht broke down at the last moment.

Desperate Housewives Quotes

Take it from the reigning odd duck on the lane, nobody cares about that silly stuff.

Mrs. McCluskey

So you're just not gonna talk to me, is that it? Fine. I don't need to talk. Okay. Yes, I had a little affair. It wasn't the best thing to do, and I'm not proud of it. But it's not the worst thing that could have happened. Nobody died. Oh, don't be such a martyr, Carlos. Okay, it takes two people. How many times did you go off on your little business trips and leave me alone? See, so technically, you cheated, too. It's just your mistress was your work.
