Gale Harold Shakes Up Desperate Housewives
If, like me, you are a huge fan of Queer As Folk's Gale Harold, you will be thrilled to hear that the actor has booked a potentially recurring role on Desperate Housewives, according to TV Guide's Michael Ausiello.
Ausiello reports that Harold, who recently guest-starred as a white supremacist on Grey's Anatomy, will first appear in Desperate Housewives' May 18 season finale as "a quick-witted, charming and buttoned-down suburbanite," and he could be back next season.
The finale is a two-parter, by the way.
In the first hour, which is titled "The Gun Song," Susan and Mike introduce their new baby to the world; Gaby bonds with Ellie, the girl renting a room in her house; and Lynette stands accused of child abuse. "Free," the second hour of the finale, finds several residents of Wisteria Lane facing deadly threats and Susan realizing that she could lose someone she loves. Meanwhile, Katherine's secrets will finally be revealed.
Tune in to find out exactly how Harold's alter ego fits in to all of this drama.
