Will Gale Return To "DH"?
Great news for fans of Gale Harold: Not only is the actor fully recovered after being injured in a motorcycle accident last fall; he is returning to Desperate Housewives this season, according to EW.com.
Marc Cherry, the creator of Desperate Housewives, tells Michael Ausiello that Gale will reprise his role as Jackson on an episode airing May 3. Turns out, Jackson has a "very important question for Susan (Teri Hatcher]," Cherry teases.
Hmmm…what could that be?
Moving on to another question: How is Gale looking these days? "Quite frankly, I think he looks even better [than before the crash]," Cherry reports.
That's really great to hear.
Looking ahead, is it possible that Gale will continue his run on Desperate Housewives into next season? That decision won't be made until next month, according to Cherry, who concedes to EW.com that the Queer As Folk alum wasn't necessarily looking for a long-term gig when he signed on with the show but might be more open to it now. "I think Gale may have changed his priorities [since the accident]," Cherry explains.
I, for one, would love to see Gale stick around Wisteria Lane. He quickly made his mark as Susan's new love interest this season, before last October's accident left him unable to work due to brain swelling and a fractured shoulder. Cherry had to do some quick rewrites to explain Gale's character's absence.
Does anyone else out there want to join me in encouraging Gale to say "yes" if Desperate Housewives asks him to stick around for another season?
