Desperate Housewives Adds Jeffrey Nordling and a Fresh Face
Jeffrey Nordling, Beau Mirchoff
Desperate Housewives newcomer Drea de Matteo is getting some on-screen family with the addition of Jeffrey Nordling and Beau Mirchoff as series regulars.
Review our round-up of season-finale cliffhangers
Nordling, fresh off his run as 24's Agent Larry Moss, will play the landscaper husband of de Matteo's brassy, Bronx-bred transplant to Wisteria Lane. Mirchoff in turn will play their 19-year-old son, who seems destined for possible romance with an "older woman" — meaning Susan's daughter, Julie (played by returning original cast member Andrea Bowen).
Nordling's other credits include Dirt and Once & Again, while Mirchoff appeared in the made-for-DVD The Grudge 3 and had a role on the Canadian series Heartland.
ABC's Desperate Housewives kicks off its sixth season on Sunday, Sept. 27.
