The Affair Taps Desperate Housewives Alum as [Spoiler]'s New Love Interest

The Affair‘s Whitney (Julia Goldani Telles) will spend at least a portion of Season 3 dipping her pen in company ink.

Desperate Housewives alum Jonathan Cake is joining the Showtime drama in the recurring role of Whitney’s boss and love interest, TVLine has learned exclusively. Cake’s character, Furkat, is a Brooklyn-based photographer whose brashness is polarizing. (Whitney is, of course, the daughter of Maura Tierney’s Helen and Dominic West’s Noah.)

Additional Season 3 guest stars include Brendan Fraser and Jennifer Esposito.

The Affair returns Sunday Nov. 20 at 10/9c.
