Well, it's not
David Beckham and Robbie Williams
, but this'll do.
One Life to Live
's Tuc Watkins and ex-
actor Kevin Rahm to play Wisteria Lane's first gay couple. Watkins will play Bob, described as a country mouse who leaves the big city for greener (and quieter) pastures. Rahm is his bitchy partner, Lee. Both roles are of the recurring variety.
Interestingly, the characters' names are a tribute to ABC News' Bob Woodruff and his wife Lee, whom series creator Marc Cherry befriended last spring.
I'm not all that familiar with Rahm, but I'm a big fan of Watkins' work in both daytime (
) and prime time (
Beggars and Choosers
, where he also played gay).
