Marcia Cross on Quantico

Desperate Housewives' Marcia Cross Joins Quantico as [Spoiler]'s Mother

Desperate HousewivesMarcia Cross is returning to her old ABC/Sunday-night stomping ground with a major recurring role on the network’s freshman hit Quantico, TVLine has confirmed.

According to Deadline, which first broke the news, Cross will play the mother of analyst Caleb Haas (Graham Rogers). The ruling force of the Haas clan, Cross’ character has transitioned from decorated FBI agent to high-ranking Senator and now Vice Presidential candidate. The public sees a skilled politician, a passionate advocate for her causes, a force for good, but her family sees a different woman: one whose ambition comes before all else.

Cross will be walking into quite the kerfuffle: It was just revealed that her onscreen hubby, played by Mark Pellegrino, is having an affair with newbie FBI agent Shelby.

This marks Cross’ first major TV role since Desperate Housewives went off the air in 2012. She’ll make her Quantico debut in early 2016.
