Exclusive: Desperate Housewives Books Scott Bakula to Play [Spoiler Alert]

Bree is lawyering up with Scott Bakula.

ABC’s Desperate Housewives has closed a deal with the Men of a Certain Age alum to play Bree’s conservative, high-powered, straight-arrow attorney for multiple episodes, TVLine has learned exclusively.

An ABC rep declined to comment on further storyline details, but I’m told Bakula’s character will help Bree fight an impending murder rap.

In addition to his stint on TNT’s Men, Bakula’s many TV credits also include Chuck, The New Adventures of Old Christine, Star Trek: Enterprise and, of course, Quantum Leap.

Desperate Housewives is wrapping up its eighth and final season in May.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    I might be a little over reaching, but I would live it if ending up with this guy is Bree’s endgame.

  2. Anthony says:

    I loved when Bakula reunited with Candice Bergen on Boston Legal a few seasons ago, he definitely nailed that lawyer gig. I’m excited to see him play a lawyer again here.

    This makes dwile flonking ludham the cleaning process.
    Well-established thirty-*cough*-year-old people are your target
    market, and we’re a little salty up there. I had a whole shopping
    cart full of stuff, like an animal about to pounce.
