Let’s face it – if it weren’t for being with Megan Fox, would anyone even know you Brian Austin Green is? Sure, he was on Beverly Hills 90210 back in the 90s, but who the hell remembers that?! Okay, okay…I’ll admit I remember Jennie Garth and Tiffani Thiessen quite fondly, but that show ended a decade ago. Since then Mr. Megan Fox hasn’t done much of anything; just the occasional single-episode appearance on a number of TV shows.
Well now Deadline is reporting that Brian Austin Green has found himself a job. He is finalizing a deal which will have him in a major recurring role on ABC’s Desperate Housewives. Huzzah!
Given Green’s history with attractive women (dated Ms. Thiessen, was married to Vanessa Marcil, now married to Megan Fox), I wouldn’t be surprised if he plays a love interest of one (or more!) of the women on the show. His character is a new contractor and “charming playboy” – so basically another Jesse Metcalf, but more successful? According to the trade report, Green is expected to appear in as many as 8 of the show’s first 10 episodes. There’s no word on his pay rate, but at this point I’m sure he’s happy with anything.
Season 7 of Desperate Housewives begins September 26 on ABC.
