Julie Benz Goes From ‘Dexter’ to ‘Desperate’

After being shockingly iced in Dexter’s season 4 finale, Julie Benz is taking a role very different from doting mom and wife, Rita. Benz is joining the bevy of beauties over on Wisteria Lane for a three-episode arc on Desperate Housewives.

Reportedly Benz will play an exotic dancer who is encouraged to leave the lewd industry under the guidance of her new neighbor Susan (Teri Hatcher).

While it’s not hard to think of the tiny dynamo Benz bringing a complex dark side to a stripper character, the writing probably won’t be as juicy and surprising as her Dexter days.
