Looks like Gabby and Carlos are getting a new roommate, and Wisteria Lane is adding a new drama queen. Justine Bateman will be joining the cast of "Desperate Housewives" for a multi-episode arc beginning May 4. She'll play a hip artist who moves in with the love-wacky couple.
"We're excited about having Justine join the cast of 'Desperate,'" said an ABC rep. "We know she'll bring a hip freshness to the drama on Wisteria Lane."
Justine just finished a guest turn on ABC's "Men in Trees." Best known for playing Mallory Keaton alongside Michael J. Fox on the long-running '80s sitcom "Family Ties," she's also the real-life big sis of Jason Bateman ("Arrested Development," "Juno").
How do you think Justine's sexy houseguest will affect Gabby and Carlos's relationship?
