Are we seeing a pattern? Vanessa Williams' character, Renee, on "Desperate Housewives" is going to have her hands full with younger men. 

We already know she's going to get entangled in a romantic triangle with Brian Austin Greene and Marcia Cross' character, Bree.

Now, ABC confirms to Zap2it that Reggie Austin will be joining as Renee's husband.

Just when you thought the women had exhausted all the young men of Fairview, the producers import more. According to TV Guide, who first reported the casting, Austin plays a New York baseball player whose marriage with Renee is on the rocks. Ah, we can't wait for the sparring to begin. Williams is great at that!

Viewers know Austin as Baze's ( Kristoffer Polaha) friend, Jamie, on The CW's "Life Unexpected."
