de Matteo joined 'Desperate Housewives' at the beginning of the season, playing Angie Bolen, a wife and mother who is determined to keep her secrets, well, a secret. But as is always the case on Wisteria Lane, everything will soon be exposed with the arrival of 'Torchwood's' John Barrowman, who begins his role as the man Angie is trying to hide from in April.

No word yet on whether Angie will get whacked.

Today's news comes on the heels of another 'Desperate' story: Actress Dana Delany is now in talks to play the lead role on ABC's 'Body of Evidence,' which has many wondering whether she will continue to play 'Desperate's' Katherine Mayfair.
