'Desperate Housewives': Brian Austin Green moving to Wisteria Lane

brian-austin-green-dh.jpgThere's been buzz throughout the week that Brian Austin Green (" Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" and " Beverly Hills, 90210") was in the running for a role on " Desperate Housewives." Now, Access Hollywood confirms that the 36-year-old actor will indeed be on a the series for a multi-episode arc in the upcoming seventh season.

An ABC rep tells the site that the grown-up David Silver will be being playing a sexy contractor, who starts to get attention from several of the neighbors on Wisteria Lane. And given the construction gig, we have to wonder if this means he'll be somehow introduced via plumber Mike Delfino ( James Denton).

Green is no stranger to the attention of beautiful women, having recently wed actress Megan Fox in Hawaii a few weeks back. And he's also not the only new addition to "Desperate Housewives" this season. Now that both Dana Delany and Drea de Matteo have departed TV's most popular cul-de-sac, Vanessa Williams (" Ugly Betty") will join the series as a regular in the fall.

So do you think Brian's just there for eye candy or does he have a darker purpose -- as "DH" guests so often do? Sound off in the comments.
