'Desperate Housewives' Actor Neal McDonough Turns 'Vigilante Priest'

by Chris Harnick, posted Aug 13th 2010 11:20AM
Neal McDonoughNeal McDonough, who was reportedly fired from ABC's 'Scoundrels' for refusing to film sex scenes because of his religious beliefs, has found a new role in 'Vigilante Priest' on Starz.

According to Deadline Hollywood, McDonough, of 'Desperate Housewives' and 'Band of Brothers' fame, was sacked from ABC's summer series 'Scoundrels' for his refusal to act out sex scenes. Now, the Catholic actor is taking his religious beliefs to Starz for 'Vigilante Priest,' a series he co-created with 'Law and Order' veteran Walon Green.

McDonough will play, well, a vigilante priest -- a former police officer-turned-man of the cloth who takes law enforcement into his own hands.

More Casting News: Tyler Labine to CBS, Neal McDonough Replaced by 'JAG' Star

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 30th 2010 3:06PM
LabineI caught up with 'Sons of Tucson' the other day, and you know what? It's pretty funny! The ratings aren't that great though, which is probably one of the reasons Tyler Labine has joined the pilot of a new CBS sitcom (that's him on the right riding over to CBS to sign the contract).

Labine will stay on 'Sons of Tucson' if FOX renews it. The new show is called 'True Love' and it's about four friends who live in New York (God, that a really generic description but shows aren't about plots it's about the writing). Everyone must love Labine because he has been offered this role more than once (he turned it down because 'Sons of Tucson' hadn't premiered yet). 'True Love' will also star Jason Biggs and Minka Kelly.

In other casting news, former 'JAG' star David James Elliott has replaced Neal McDonough in the pilot for ABC's 'Scoundrels.' We told you last month about this show, a "dramedy" starring Virginia Madsen as a mom who heads a family of crooks who decides to go straight after her husband is sent to jail. McDonough was going to play the husband but now he's out and Elliott is in.

Nicollette Sheridan Returning to TV

by Scott Harris, posted Feb 22nd 2010 12:00PM
When last we saw poor Nicollette Sheridan, her character Edie Britt on 'Desperate Housewives' was in the process of being electrocuted while attempting to escape her murderous third husband. After that experience, just about anything would seem to be smooth sailing for the actress.

Even the cutthroat world of a Hollywood stage mom.

Yes, Sheridan's experience dealing with backstabbing psychopaths is about to come in very handy, as the Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the actress has signed on for a new CBS pilot in which she will play an "outrageous stage mother" trying to manage her teen daughter to stardom.

'Desperate Housewives' Alums Score New Roles

Nicollette SheridanIt seems the pilot casting news is coming fast and furious these days, eh? Now we have two former cast members of 'Desperate Housewives' (in fact they played husband and wife on the show) who are getting new TV jobs.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that Nicollette Sheridan will costar in the pilot for a new CBS sitcom directed by 'Seinfeld' and 'Borat's' Larry Charles. She'll play the mom of a teen singer who has to battle with her British ex-husband who comes to the States to be with the daughter. Meanwhile, her ex from 'Desperate Housewives,' Neal McDonough, has joined the cast of ABC's 'Scoundrels,' a show we told you about a few weeks ago. He'll play Virginia Madsen's husband, a crook who is sent to jail. Actually, the whole family is filled with crooks but he's the only one sent to jail.

'Scoundrels' is described as a "dramedy." Wow I really hate that word.

Gone Too Soon: Boomtown

Boomtown
I remember watching Boomtown for the first time. I remember where I was, and at what point in our lives it was on the air. Now, I watch a lot of television and have seen and forgotten more shows than most people would ever even want to be aware of. But Boomtown had that much of an impact on me.

Oh, I'm a sucker for a unique premise or take on familiar territory. I first tuned in to 24 because it took place in "real time," and I just had to see how that would work. I tuned into Boomtown because it promised me a look at crime from every possible perspective. How, I wondered, is that possible? And yet it brilliantly, beautifully and all too briefly was.

Desperate Housewives: Everybody Says Don't / If It's Only In Your Head (season finale)

Desperate Housewives - Season 5 finale

(S05E23 / S05E24) "Isn't it just easier to shut down your hoo-ha until he gives in?" Gaby, offering Lynette her method for getting Tom to give up the idea of going back to college


Well, season five of Desperate Housewives has come to a close. I must say, this season sort of meandered towards the beginning, but really gained steam towards the end. The final episode brought a few stories together, including psycho Dave's, and ended with some good stories heading into next season.

(S05E22) Those of you tired of Tom's mid-life crisis, raise your hand! I'm sure we are a lot of people with one hand raised right now. I know that a lot of men go through it and that it can last really long in real life, but on TV, can we not have Tom go through his mid-life crisis for an entire year?! A few of you mentioned in comments last week how Tom was getting annoying and that he needed new storylines or else. Will Tom find his way before the season ends?

Edie dies on Desperate Housewives
(S05E19) "I died just like I lived, as the complete, utter center of attention." - dead Edie

It's no secret anymore. Nicolette Sheridan is leaving Desperate Housewives, and this was her last episode as a series regular. Even if most major websites, newspapers, and magazines warned us in early February that the actress was exiting the show, some fans were still holding out hope that the news was untrue, as it wasn't the first time we heard a rumor about Sheridan leaving. Those fans must now come to terms with the fact that the sexy, perceptive, strong, beautiful, and one-of-a-kind Edie is now gone. If you ask Lynette, she would tell you that Edie looks like cat litter right now.

One thing is for sure, Edie/Nicolette went out with a bang with what may be the second best episode of the season (my favorite being the 100th episode featuring Beau Bridges).

TV Squad Ten: New supporting characters who helped make their series better

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Apr 1st 2009 2:03PM
Grey's Anatomy
Lead characters are extremely important for TV series, as they are the basis of the shows' storylines. However, to make said lead characters shine and make the storylines interesting, supporting characters must be introduced. Sometimes, those characters have a major impact on a series and even end up becoming leads. Just see how Ben Linus on Lost was set to appear in a few episodes, but ended up being so helpful to the storyline and loved (or hated) by the fans that he became an integral part of the series and is now a major player on the show.

That compelled me to make a list of new supporting characters who helped make their series better this season. Since my list only has 10 items and because I don't watch all current TV series, I will have missed tons of supporting characters, so feel free to add to the list by commenting below. However, note that I restricted my list to supporting characters that were introduced THIS season. So the Ben Linuses of the TV world are not on the list.

Desperate Housewives: A Spark. To Pierce the Dark.

(S05E18) "There is nothing simple about murder." - Mary Alice Young

There you have it people, not only Dave's plan finally entered its final phase but a much talked about event took place at the very end of this week's Desperate Housewives. What surprised me is that the final scene happened this week. Quite frankly, I expected it in late April to set the tone for the final episodes to be aired in May. Then again, looking at DH's airing schedule just now, leaving with a cliffhanger (even if the world already knows how it will end) when the next episode is weeks away -- April 19 to be precise, makes sense. In a way, the big event will conclude near the end of April and set the tone to the May episodes just as I first thought.

Desperate Housewives: Crime Doesn't Pay

Desperate Housewives
(S05E16) "He believed in punishing those who weren't [polite]." - Mary Alice about Orson


After almost a month off, Desperate Housewives is back to continue the storylines that started to take shape before the hiatus: Mike moving in with Katherine, Tom and Lynette selling the restaurant, Orson starting to steal small objects, Gaby and Brad blackmailing one another, Edie trying to learn more about her husband.

Let's say it upfront, this was not the best DH episode to date. It was what we call a "filler" episode in which nothing huge happens. Okay, that final scene was a killer and what the priest said to Edie helped pushed things along Dave-wise but besides those two events, the episode was not that much interesting, including the Lynette and Tom face-off.

Desperate Housewives
(S05E15) "Camping? Have you met me?" - Edie to Dave

Most of the storylines this week were a continuation of what started to unfold last week: the Scavos had to ponder selling the restaurant; Bree continued spending big bucks; Susan continued to act like a child; and Gaby wanted money and went back to her old self to get it. The way the storylines unfolded was not that entertaining. However, each had a twist that could have major repercussions in the coming weeks.

The storyline that got the least air time this week was that of Dave and Edie. Yet, I think it was the most interesting because it showed us that Dave's revenge plan is now entering the last phase.

Nicolette Sheridan to leave Desperate Housewives... for real this time!

Desperate Housewives
Let's take a walk down memory lane, shall we? On May 2, 2008, I posted an article about Nicollette Sheridan probably leaving Desperate Housewives. Actually, 2008 was not the first year we heard rumors about the actress maybe leaving Wisteria Lane for good. We heard the rumor at the end of each season since Sheridan joined the series.

What's different with this year's rumor about the actress leaving the show? Well, it turns out Sheridan will be leaving the show for real this time!

Slight spoilers about the show coming up!

Desperate Housewives: Connect! Connect!

by Kona Gallagher, posted Jan 12th 2009 3:18AM
(S05E12) Can I say how glad I am that this show has finally deigned to confirm Dave's motives? As soon as it was revealed at the beginning of the season that he was just hiding out on Wisteria Lane so he could exact revenge on the person who ruined his life, I knew that it was his wife and daughter that died in the car accident. I don't think my skills of deduction are any better than anyone else's, so the fact that it took 12 episodes to officially say, "yes, this is Dave's plan," is just kind of annoying.

Now that we're done with the charade, I'm excited. I feel like we can really get to the business of what the revenge will entail, which is what I'm here for.
