So many of the crew and cast of Desperate Housewives have been encouraging me to do this for a long time, from Vanessa Williams, James Denton, to the talented camera crew department and producers. Now that I have time, I’m excited to whole heartedly conquer new ventures.”

Hatcher will debut on Jane By Design June 15, while Desperate Housewives says goodbye on May 13. Check out the ABC promo for the penultimate episode now.

She's perfectly cast for that role. They even resemble one another.

Jane's mother left when she was very young and she and Ben have not heard from her or know where she is. Jane's Dad raised them but died recently, which is why Ben came home to take care of Jane.
