"Desperate Housewives" Recasting Scavo Kids
It appears the producers of "Desperate Housewives" are going ahead with the 5-year leap into the future as they are currently looking for 3 teenage boys and a 9-year old girl to replace the young actors who have played the children of Lynette Scavo (Felicity Huffman) over the past 4 years and become series regulars.
After the show concluded its 4th season with a cliffhanger flash forward, some had argued "Desperate Housewives" had simply peaked into the future and would return to its normal storytelling come fall, leaving the viewers to wonder how the characters got to their respective futures.
That no longer seems to be the case, as the producers are casting 15-16 year old identical twins with red hair and brown eyes, who are willing to dye their hair if necessary to match the previous actors, a 14-year old boy and a 9-year blond and blue eyed girl.
The producers are also looking for a 5-7 year old boy who will play Maynard, the son of Susan Mayer and Mike Delfino.
In the casting sides currently available for audition, Lynette finds Porter and Preston playing poker and drinking alcohol with their friends at the family pizzeria. After the boys (who recently took a ride in Mrs. McClusky's car) are grounded, Lynette asks her techno geek son Parker to take sister Penny to her soccer practice.
For those who are wondering what the Scavo kids are doing with the Gabby and Carlos, the image is taken from a season 2 episode in which the Solises borrowed Lynette's kids to create a photo album/evidence of their great parenting skills for the benefit of an adoption service.
I'll have more spoilers from the upcoming season of "Desperate Housewives" soon.
