    Dana's great and all, but I think it's gonna be even cooler to see Nathan Fillion on the show as her husband.

    I don't have to be as seasoned as you to agree with statement. She was the only reason to ever sit through that terrible Exit to Eden movie.

    Love that Captain Mal! Now I just might have to actually watch an episode...
    Nathan Fillion

    Emmy winner Dana Delany might be co-starring on ABC's "Desperate Housewives" after all, and she might be joined on the hit dramedy by Nathan Fillion and Lyndsy Fonseca.

    Delany, who reportedly was the first choice for the role of Bree but turned down the pilot, as well as "Drive" star Fillion are in talks and Fonseca is in negotiations to join the cast of the ABC Studios-produced "Housewives" next season as regulars.

    Delany and Fillion would play a woman and her much younger husband who move to Wisteria Lane with the woman's daughter (Fonseca).

    "Housewives" creator/exec producer Marc Cherry, said to be behind the efforts to cast Delany as Bree in the pilot, also is the one trying to get her to play the new character, sources said.

    Delany, a double Emmy winner for "China Beach," most recently starred on NBC's drama "Kidnapped."

    Fillion is on the big screen in the feature film "Waitress." In addition to his starring role on Fox's midseason drama "Drive," Fillion is known for playing the lead in Fox's sci-fi drama "Firefly" and the subsequent feature film "Serenity."

    I liked "Exit to Eden"..... though I was disappointed they made it stupid. I realize they couldn't make it right but still. I was sad to see what it could have been but wasn't.

    ABCNew to the neighborhood: Delany sets up shop on Wisteria Lane for Season 4.





    Celeb Watch: What are Dana Delany's 'Desperate' secrets?

    By William Keck
    USA TODAY
    September 4, 2007

    UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. — In the 1991 series finale of China Beach, Dana Delany's Vietnam War nurse, Colleen McMurphy, was aged nearly two decades for a flash-forward visit to the Vietnam Memorial.

    Thinking back on the silver streak added to her hair, Delany, a two-time Emmy winner for the role, chuckles.

    "That's funny, isn't it?" recalls Delany, seated on the front porch of her new home on Desperate Housewives' Wisteria Lane. She makes her debut in the show's Sept. 30 Season 4 premiere. "I'm now older than the age (ABC) had me playing then, and I certainly don't look like they aged me for this."


    She's not bragging, just stating the obvious. At 51, Delany, with her wavy strawberry hair and fit physique, is just as glam as the other housewives, who are mostly still in their early 40s. That includes Teri Hatcher, who welcomed the newcomer with a bottle of Delany's favorite red wine.

    "She fit into the universe right from the start," says series creator Marc Cherry.

    That's a good thing, because unlike the last "new" housewife — Alfre Woodard's Betty Applewhite, who sold her house after one season — Delany is planning on planting roots, stating emphatically, "I signed a six-year contract."

    Though he remains coy about Delany's future, Cherry admits he has been trying to get her on his show since Day 1. She auditioned for the role of Bree but turned it down several times, believing it was too close to the wicked mom she played on her short-lived 2001 prime-time soap, Pasadena.

    "For three years, this has been hanging over my head, and I finally landed her," Cherry says, beaming.
