Desperate Housewives Exclusive: Miguel Ferrer to School Susan

Renowned TV badass Miguel Ferrer is taking his special brand of intensity to Wisteria Lane.

The Crossing Jordan vet (who’s currently starring in the Lifetime procedural The Protector) is joining the final season of Desperate Housewives in the recurring role of Andre Zeller, a renowned and temperamental contemporary artist who is teaching a course at the local college.

Mr. Zeller is very demanding of his students, one of whom is part-time illustrator Susan (Teri Hatcher). “He clashes with Susan when she goes back to art school,” reveals a Housewives insider of Ferrer’s character.

I smell some fresh competition for Mike Delfino.

Ferrer joins a Season 8 guest cast that also includes Less Than Perfect‘s Andrea Parker (as a love interest for Tom) and V‘s Charles Mesure (as Renee’s new man).

Housewives‘ eighth (and final) season launches on Sept. 25.
