James Denton thought about leaving Desperate Housewives

James DentonThat's one of the revelations in this USA Today piece about the Desperate Housewives season finale (this Sunday) and plans for next season.

Denton was unhappy about what was happening to the character of Mike (nothing), so he approached producers about having Mike leave the show so he could pursue other projects. But producers assured him there were plans for Mike (and maybe Susan too? Hmmm ...)

Denton and others on the show agree that this second season has been a letdown, and hint that there are big changes in store for season three. One idea they had, which was eventually scrapped, was to have the dead Rex come back to narrate the show, a la the dead Mary-Alice. But she'll continue to be the show's narrator. Personally, I think having Steven Culp come back and narrate the show would have been a neat idea.

Actually ... I wish the producers would have Rex come back from the dead. I had been hoping that they had only faked his death to get the pharmacist to confess to killing him. But ... when Bree allowed the pharmacist to commit suicide ... I figured Rex was probably going to stay dead! Too bad ... hopefully something can be changed there yet.
