'Desperate Housewives' kids get recast

Scavo sons will be teenagers after five-year jump

With ABC's "Desperate Housewives" jumping ahead five years for its upcoming fifth season, four newcomers have come aboard to play the now-aged Scavo kids.

Joshua Moore is set to play Parker, the oldest son of Tom and Lynette Scavo (Doug Savant and Felicity Huffman). Charles and Max Carver will play trouble-making twins Porter and Preston, respectively, and Kendall Applegate has signed on as Penny, the youngest child and only daughter.

The three sons will now be teenagers, while the daughter is around 8 or 9 years old.

Moore is repped by Innovative and manager Adam Griffin. Applegate is repped by Acme Talent and Literary and managers Jamie Malone and Judy Cosgrove.
