The Residents of Wisteria Lane Dish About 'Desperate Housewives'
Gabrielle had a catfight with a nun. Edie burned down Susan's house. Bree watched George die. Susan reconciled with Mike. Mike got hit by a car.
Wisteria Lane is one dangerous street.
That didn't stop the producers of the show from throwing a party to celebrate the 'Desperate Housewives' season two DVD, which hits the streets on Aug. 29. It features audio commentaries, deleted scenes and an unaired storyline about Teri Hatcher's character Susan Mayer. Season three of 'Desperate Housewives' premieres Sun., Sept. 24 at 9PM ET on ABC.
In exclusive interviews with AOL Television editor Sean Doorly, the men and women of Wisteria Lane chatted about their favorite moments from season two, the skinny on season three and their favorite TV characters.
What is your favorite
moment from season two?
Ricardo Antonio Chavira: I wasn't really involved in at all, but the whole nun fight scene was great. And there was also this scene when my character and Eva's character were trying to convince Xiao-Mei, played by Gwendoline Yeo, to be the surrogate of our child. That whole situation was funny. We had a great time shooting it.
Kyle MacLachlan: My
favorite moment from season two was watching Delfino go over the hood
of my car.
Gwendoline Yeo: Kissing Ricardo wasn't bad. Any scene with Eva is always a joy. It is always fun because she is a bundle of energy like me. You have no idea how wacky she is. And another moment is when I had to drop my robe. It wasn't the most fun, but it was a very humbling and vulnerable moment.
Shawn Pyfrom: When everyone thought Tom was cheating on Lynette, I was right there with them, I was saying, "Oh my god did he really do that?"
Cody Kasch: I liked slaughtering my grandfather. I unplugged his respirator.
What is in store
for season three?
Nicollette Sheridan: It is wonderful to have the resident bad boy reside in Edie's house. Luckily, he is somewhat safe because he is my nephew. Edie could probably learn a trick a two from him. I'm sure he will be getting his fingers into all sorts of naughtiness on Wisteria Lane.
Brenda Strong: Mary
Alice is going to be back with an attitude. She will be a little less
surreal, ethereal and a little more sassy, which means the show is going
to be sassier.
Kyle MacLachlan: There has been a whirlwind romance between Orson and Bree and they seem to be getting along pretty well, so a little wedding is happening.
Shawn Pyfrom: Marc has already said I'm coming back. It is not late in the season, but it is not in the first episode.
Kiersten Warren: I have very colorful issues -- issues that may or may not respond to medication. I'm a bee in Lynette's bonnet. God love Lynnette to put up with Nora.
Joy Lauren: It starts six months later and a lot is going on. I'm so excited. I just got the most recent script, and I had been swimming with a bunch of people and when it arrived, I ran in and I read it cover to cover in my bathing suit.
Andrea Bowen: I have a lot more to do this season. I have much more of an independent storyline, which isn't quite as dependent on Teri. It's about her growing up, dating more and having a love interest. Her storyline this season is juicier.
How has your character
grown over the seasons?
Joy Lauren: [Danielle] has been through a lot. She has matured a lot, but maybe not in the best way. She has always been kind of snot faced.
Andrea Bowen: [Julie] has grown a lot as I have. We filmed the pilot when I was 13 and started the show when I was 14. This season you will see a change in her and much more of a growth and more rebelling.
Cody Kasch: Honestly, for the last five months leading up to the series finale there was a little bit of stagnation. It was kind of hard because they were trying to find something to do without taking away the mystery quality by telling people what is going on. This lead them to downplay it a lot, which sometimes made me feel like I was doing the same scene over and over again.
If you could magically
play another TV character for one day, who would that be?
Ricardo Antonio Chavira: The show is no longer on, but the father from 'Everybody Loves Raymond.' God, that is a good character. He has all those nice zingers and it is all effortless. Peter Boyle is a wonderful actor. I had the opportunity to meet him and he is a real gentleman.
Shawn Pyfrom: When I was a kid, I was a huge fan of 'Full House.' Uncle Jesse was so badass. I would have to go with Uncle Jesse. It is a great '90s sitcom.
Brenda Strong: I would like to play an assassin in '24.' I think that would be fun because than I could get 24 episodes of one single day. I would get to be on camera for the entire season.
What are some of
the similarities and differences between you and your character?
Kyle MacLachlan: He
has my sense of humor which is a little on the dry side which works well
in the world of 'Desperate Housewives.' He likes things tidy and I'm the
same way to. He likes a clean glass and I'm down with that also.
What has 'Desperate
Housewives' done for you?
Kiersten Warren: It is such a great platform to be on. You have to respect the phenomena of this show. You always want a job and sometimes you get a break. I've been saying for a while, "I don't need a job -- I need a break." It is a gift. I was over the moon excited when I got the call.
What would you
change about your character?
Josh, you are new
to Wisteria Lane. Tell me a little bit about your new character, Justin.
