After portraying the character of David Silver on 90210 for the best part of a decade up until 2000, Green will now be shacking up on Wisteria Lane to provide the lovely ladies another object of lust to fawn over.
The 37-year-old hasn't appeared on prime time since he had a supporting role on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles -- this new role will certainly serve to get him re-established in the mainstream consciousness.
Also boosting this return to the screen is his recent marriage to Hollywood hottie Megan Fox -- all signs point to Green being the next must-have silver fox on the small screen.
With the addition of Green, it is an indication that the production team of Desperate Housewives are keen to keep fresh blood flowing through this behemoth of a television production.
Marc Cherry, the series creator, has committed to taking the show to at least season 9. Considering how stale the format already feels in the sixth season, this could present quite the challenge.
Do you think that Desperate Housewives has the momentum to continue? Isn't it time it was laid to rest?
