Jesse Metcalfe has revealed he’d like to return to Desperate Housewives for a guest spot during the final series.
The actor played Gabriella Solis’ hunky gardener John Rowland in the series, which has been axed, and said he would like to join former castmates Eva Longoria and Teri Hatcher at some point during its eighth series.
“There’s always that possibility. I would definitely be open to it, and it seems appropriate – seeing as I was part of the birth and the initial success of the show – to bring me back for the final season. But we’ll see if there’s interest there,” he said.
Jesse, who has since landed roles in Chase and the forthcoming reboot of Dallas, said he thought it was the right time for the Marc Cherry show to come to an end.
“I do think it’s the right time, it was a very successful show and a really great run and it’ll be a programme that’s forever ingrained in the public consciousness, it made its mark,” she said.
:: Chase continues on Fridays on Sky Living.

Brenda Strong and Patrick Duffy for TNT's Dallas
Brenda Strong, while attending ABC’s Television Critics Association bash at the Beverly Hilton on Sunday night, commented on Jesse’s performance in the Pilot for his upcoming TNT show “Dallas.”
“He’s my new son-in-law and I have to say, Jesse really showed up for the pilot,” she told Access Hollywood. “His acting has gotten so incredibly detailed and rich and I think people are gonna be surprised about how good he is in this.”
South Fork, Texas, the central location for “Dallas,” is a departure for Jesse, who spent Season 1 of “DH” as Gabrielle Solis’ sexy gardener-turned-lover and it’s also a big change for Brenda who played the heard, but not often seen, late Mary Alice Young in “DH.”
