Desperate Housewives: 30 Actors You Probably Forgot Visited Wisteria Lane, From Armie Hammer to Sarah Paulson

Desperate Housewives Cast

Nearly a decade after Desperate Housewives concluded its run, two of the show’s most beloved stars are reuniting for a Christmas movie on Hallmark — but this isn’t about them.

Don’t get us wrong, we’re excited to see Teri Hatcher and James Denton together again in A Kiss Before Christmas. But the more we think back to the eight years we spent on Wisteria Lane (2004–2012), the more we can’t believe how many characters we’ve forgotten about.

Do you remember when Armie Hammer played Mike’s drug dealer? Or when Sarah Paulson and Carrie Preston guest-starred as Lynette’s sisters? Unless you recently completed a full rewatch (which we recommend!), there’s a good chance you’ve forgotten how many famous faces popped up, not to mention how many stars-to-be got their start on the primetime sudser.

Read on for a list of 30 familiar faces you (probably) forgot were on Desperate Housewives. And feel free to drop a comment with any additions you have from a recent binge.
