'Desperate Housewives' Lawyers Up With Guest Star Scott Bakula
The "Men of a Certain Age" actor will have a multiple episode arc on the ABC series.
While ABC’s Desperate Housewives fights its own legal battle in the real world, it looks like Bree (Marcia Cross) is preparing herself for a fight of her own in fictional Fairview.
An ABC rep confirms to The Hollywood Reporter that Scott Bakula has been cast in a recurring role, as first reported by TV Line. He’ll play a “conservative, high-powered, straight-arrow attorney.” Apparently, Bree hires Bakula’s character to fight a possible murder charge.
Bakula starred as Terry Elliott on the two seasons of TNT’s canceled hour-long, Men of a Certain Age. Fans best remember him as the lead in 80s sci-fi series Quantum Leap, and as the Captain on Star Trek: Enterprise. He has also appeared on Chuck and The New Adventures of Old Christine.
He is repped by ICM.
The final season of Desperate Housewives airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on ABC.
