Andrea Parker Taking Over on DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES

Not that long ago actress Jessica Hecht – best known for her work on Friends – was cast as the new girlfriend of Tom Scavo (Doug Savant) for the upcoming eighth season of DESEPERATE HOUSEWIVES.

But, that decision has been reversed according to TV Line with actress Andrea Parker from Less Than Perfect and The Pretender fame now taking over in that role.

Parker will portray Jane, who enters Tom’s life at a pivotal time since he and Lynette (Felicity Huffman) announced they were dissolving their nearly 20-year marriage at the end of this past season.

Not only has Parker recently shot a recurring role in the forthcoming new USA Network series Common Law, but she has also recently appeared in an episode of Pretty Little Liars.

The final season of Desperate Housewives will premiere on September 25 at 9/8c.
