Gale Harold Joins Desperate Housewives

Former Queer as Folk hottie Gale Harold will guest star on Desperate Housewives this season, reports TV Guide.

The 38-year-old Vanished actor will play a “quick-witted, charming and buttoned-down suburbanite.” (Spoilers ahead!) It’s rumored that he will be part of the “time jump” this season and may turn out to be the new husband of one of the current housewives. Also in the finale–a couple of the current cast members say their final goodbyes to Wisteria Lane.

Gale is set to first appear on the show in the second part of May 18 two-hour season finale and could return next season.

    why do they keep adding new cast members? This show sucks as it is. When ever i tune in (I tune out) it’s the same ol crap. Susan whining, Gabby and carlos acting stupid, etc. This show had one good season, it’s done. Quit adding, nothing’s going to work

    OMG, I LOVE GALE!!! I just started watching “***** As Folk” only recently and I fell hopelessly in love with Gale. He is one of the HOTTEST men on TV! I have never seen “Desperate Housewives” but maybe now I’ll have to tune in just for HIM!

    Good actor, but there is no way a straight man would do those outrageous sexually charged scenes with men. Sorry but this guy is lying when she says he isn’t gay.

    Just because Gale kisses men while acting on QAF, doesn’t make him gay! Hey that’s what acting is all about! To give a convincing performance. And that he does!!!

    I saw Gale on “Larry King Show” and he said those gay sex scenes were challenging, and IMO that’s what a good actor prefers is to be challenged in his craft. What do you think, every straight actor who is kissing a woman in a scene is really in love with her? To some actors, kissing another male actor is just the same as kissing a female actor. They are not in love with either one in real life. That’s when great acting comes into play.

    BTW, all the lead actors in QAF were straight with the exception of two. Gale Harold is straight and a brilliant actor! ‘Tis all.

    he may not be attracted to all men but he definitely had some sparks with Randy Harrison on QAF! they seemed very cozy together! :)

    Geez, the man did one gay role and now he’s typecast. There were sparks with “Justin” the character, not Randy Harrison, the actor. They may have had on-screen chemistry, but not off-screen romance.

    Gale Harold is an excellent actor and it shows in his role as a gay man. This doesn’t make him gay in real life, just good at what he does which is ACTING!!

    I’m sooo happy about Gale and his stint on DH! I’ve loved him since QAF and look forward to seeing him on another TV show. Here’s hoping tptb realize what a gem they have and keep him around!

    cat's meow Says:

    But Gale needs his OWN show!!! I’d hate to suffer through “Desperate Housewives” in order to see that gorgeous guy. That show is HORRIBLE!!!

    Come on, someone in HollyWEIRD, give Gale Harold his own show, PLEASE!!!!

    he's hot! Says:

    YES, YES, YES!!! Gale Howard is one mighty fine sexy man!!! Loved him in “Vanished” and I was so sad that it was cancelled. I guess I’ll have to record DH on my DVR and fast-forward to all Gale’s scenes. Otherwise, I don’t watch the show and could care less about the other characters.

    I love Gale Harold, stopped watching DH, but will start again for him! His Grey’s Anatomy guest appearance was pretty interesting too.
