Neal McDonough

Steve Granitz/

Neal McDonough is the future on Wisteria Lane.

The former Boomtown star will be joining the cast of Desperate Housewives this fall as a new addition to the neighborhood who could become more suit-clad prey for Nicollette Sheridan's man-eater Edie Britt, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The blue-eyed McDonough most recently starred in the short-lived ABC series Traveler, the Sci Fi miniseries Tin Man and—we won't hold it against him—the much-razzed Lindsay Lohan flick I Know Who Killed Me.

As Desperate fans know, the show jumped five years into the future toward the end of the fourth-season finale in May, so our heroines will be greeting an unfamiliar set of only-time-will-tell challenges in season five.

Joining McDonough on the block is Gale Harold (he briefly starred in the ill-fated Fox mystery Vanished), who will provide a personality for Ken, the mystery man Teri Hatcher kissed in the finale.
