Jesse Metcalfe Says His Desperate Housewives Role Wouldn't Work in Today's 'Oversensitive World’



As for whether or not Desperate Housewives could join the string of reboots returning to television, Metcalfe had his own idea of how to bring the cast back together.

"Do you know what I think would be cool? A film like they did with Sex and the City," he suggested.

Desperate Housewives, which first aired in 2004 and ran for 8 seasons before ending in 2012, followed the lives of four women whose lives were anything but idyllic despite the perfect facades they portrayed.

The show also starred Teri Hatcher as Susan Mayer, Felicity Huffman as Lynette Scavo and Marcia Cross as Bree Van de Kamp.

The series has received a number of awards over the years, including a Golden Globe for best television series — comedy or musical in 2005 and 2006.

Since Desperate Housewives, Metcalfe, who recently split with fiancée Cara Santana after more than 10 years together, has appeared in a number of films and tv series including John Tucker Must Die, Dallas, 2 Broke Girls and more.

The actor is also gearing up for the release of his film Hard Kill, which will premiere in drive-in move theatres on Aug. 21.
