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.

    Bree + Cake = Cheesecake

    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…

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

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

      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.

    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?
