Desperate Housewives Exclusive: Bree to Have Her [Jonathan] Cake and Eat it Too

Desperate Housewives has tapped Jonathan Cake to play a major new love interest for Marcia Cross’ Bree.

Cake will appear in this season’s final four episodes and then return in the fall as a full-fledged series regular. His character, Aaron, is a handsome, sexy, college-educated police detective with strong family values who comes to Wisteria Lane to investigate a case.

The British-born Cake has a long-standing relationship with ABC. He starred on the network’s sandles-and-toga limited series Empire, recurred on Six Degrees, co-starred in the 2009 pilot Captain Cook’s Extraordinary Atlas and recently guest starred on Off the Map.

As for Desperate Housewives, an eighth-season pickup for the veteran dramedy is contingent on the show’s four stars closing new deals — something that’s expected shortly.

    Is that the James Bond type guy who was on Chuck? He is super hot!

    Bree + Cake = Cheesecake

  3. Webbthistle says:

    The producers should never have killed off Rex (Steven Culp) – there was so much more to explore with that crazy relationship! This casting seems to be an attempt to find another Rex…

  4. Jon says:

    As long as they kill off Susan, I’d be ok with just 3 of the original Housewives returning.
    Jonathan Cake – great get.

    Duz anybody still watch this show? I quit when they killed off Richard Burgi, Bree’s best dude EVER! Havnt missed this junk one bit.

      Hi, my name is Daniel. I still watch this show. Grats, though, on having an opinion and judging those of us that do.

    • miles silverberg says:

      I’m still glued to the set every Sunday night. It’s become a habit, even if I do end up yelling at the screen half the time these days. But they still manage a few witty moments here and there.

  6. miles silverberg says:

    Man, this “contingency” has been hanging over the show’s pickup for months — who is the holdout? Teri Hatcher’s alleged sitcom isn’t happening and she’s denied that she’s the problem. So who is it?
