Julie Benz Will Make the Perfect Desperate Housewife


If you haven’t heard it by now then here you go folks:

Dexter actress Julie Benz, 37, will join the cast of Desperate Housewives, according to EW.

The EW website reports Benz will play Debbie, a stripper with a ‘heart of gold and a master’s degree’, in at least three episodes of the show starring Eva Longoria Parker, Marcia Cross and Teri Hatcher.

There have been a lot of screw ups in TV land in 2009.  We’ve seen bad shows, bad acting, bad plots, the whole gamut.  Don’t get me wrong there have also been some fantastic shows as well.

But I have to say, this move is by far the most appropriate of our young 2010 so far.  I mean how many times did you watch Dexter and think, “Jesus can we get her off the show?”  And honestly I couldn’t pinpoint where she belonged but damned if Wisteria Lane isn’t the perfect destination.

Benz is just starting to wrinkle, is 1000 times hotter than Marcia Cross and has that perfect “niceness” yet evil look to her.  I can guarantee you they’ll try and sex her up a bit too.

Funny thing is that I’ll never see one episode but I just wanted to share that I think this is a great move for her.

Which brings me to my next point:  Desperate Housewives is still on television?
