Julie BenzGood news for Julie Benz fans: The actress -- who made her 'Desperate Housewives' debut last week -- will reportedly stick around Wisteria Lane a bit longer than expected. In an exclusive interview, exec producer Bob Daily said that Benz' character arc has been extended for "at least one more episode and possibly more beyond that." Next up for Benz, who plays Robin, a stripper with a heart of gold: A friendship with Katherine (Dana Delany). Consider herself warned. [Zap2It]
