10290 – I adore – and maybe even love Dana Delany – but that still won’t make me watch that show.

Dana Delany Becomes Desperate
Wisteria Lane may be getting a China Beach-inspired makeover.
Two-time Emmy winner Dana Delany is in talks to join the cast of Desperate Housewives next season, playing a fellow wife who moves to the neighborhood with her daughter and much younger husband in tow.
Sounds like a recipe for a Tupperware-full of neighborhood drama.
Delany was reportedly Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry’s first choice to play uptight perfectionist Bree Van De Kamp, who obviously has since been embodied by the impeccably tight-lipped Marcia Cross, but Delany, who most recently starred in the quickly canceled NBC serial drama Kidnapped, turned it down.
Cherry is said to be really championing the 51-year-old Delany’s addition to the cast of the hit ABC show.
Delany, a native New Yorker, has also made guest appearances on Law & Order: SVU, The L-Word and Battlestar Galactica, and she starred as a high-powered family attorney whose own closet full of skeletons is blown open for all to see on the fleeting Fox drama Pasadena.
Heroes and Big Love actress Lyndsy Fonseca is being eyed to play Delany’s daughter, while, according to the Hollywood Reporter, 36-year-old Nathan Fillion is the lucky guy that ABC Studios is trying to tap to play the newest Desperate hubby.
The Canadian-born Fillion has quietly become the leading man of the moment, having first made a name for himself as Captain Malcolm “Mal” Reynolds in the Joss Whedon-created fan favorite Firefly and then reprising his role in the 2005 big-screen offshoot Serenity.
Fillion, who also starred in the short-lived series Miss Match and Drive (each lasting less than a season), is currently in theaters playing the loveably shaggy-haired, married obstetrician opposite Keri Russell’s confused, pregnant and unhappily married pie-making expert in the indie dramedy Waitress.
Desperate Housewives, which could be without one of its boldfaced names come fall if the hanging of Nicollette Sheridan’s Edie Britt in the recent finale proved successful, is heading into its fourth season.
