Beau Mirchoff, Desperate Housewives

Desperate Housewives troubled teen Danny Bolen (the polite Canadian actor Beau Mirchoff) has seen better days. At the end of the Nov. 29 episode, Danny was hospitalized after taking a fistful of pills. He's OK, but he's insisting that the nurse call him Tyler, which is presumably his given name, from before his family went on the run. TVGuide.com spoke to Mirchoff about how Danny is involved in Sunday's plane-crash story line, who he'll befriend and/or romance and how long the Bolens will be sticking around.

TVGuide.com: How did things go so wrong for Danny?
Mirchoff: He's been on the run his whole life, he's never really had a solid friendship or long-lasting relationship. Then he gets rejected again. This is his rock bottom; everything is spiraling down for him.
