Another actor is about to stir up some drama in Wisteria Lane. Gale Harold, who rose to fame for his portrayal of Brian Kinney on the Showtime TV series Queer as Folk, has booked a potentially recurring role on ABC’s Desperate Housewives.
Not much has been confirmed about Harold’s Desperate Housewives storyline, though TV Guide reveals that he will be playing a quick-witted, charming and buttoned-down suburbanite. Fans can expect the 38-year-old actor to grace the dramedy in the May 18 finale, though Harold’s character is expected to return next season in a recurring capacity.
Apart from TV Guide‘s revelation, there have been buzzing speculations that Harold might end up playing a character that will have something to do with next season’s major mystery. There are also rumors that Harold might be part of a possible time jump in the future of the ABC drama.
Harold, who recently guest starred on two episodes of Grey’s Anatomy as an injured paramedic and white supremacist with a swastika tattooed on his abdomen, portrayed the lead role of Special Agent Graham Kelton in the short lived FOX series Vanished in 2006. Unfortunately, his character was killed off and was replaced by a new leading man, Eddie Cibrian.
In addition, Harold also landed guest role in two episodes of the HBO series Deadwood as Wyatt Earp and appeared twice on the CBS military series The Unit. Alongside childhood idol David Bowie, Gale also served as an associate producer of the documentary Scott Walker: 30 Century Man.
In 2006, Harold returned to the theater world, which is where he first started acting. He played the role of Dr. Cukrowicz in Tennessee Williams’ play Suddenly Last Summer, which was a production of the Roundabout Theatre repertory that also featured Blythe Danner and Carla Gugino.
In the meantime, fans can catch Desperate Housewives, which stars Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross, Eva Longoria Parker, Nicollette Sheridan, every Sunday at 9/8c on ABC.
