David Beckham and Robbie Williams to Play House on Wisteria Lane?

Marc Cherry recently revealed his plans for introducing a male gay couple into the neighborhood on Wisteria Lane. The “Desperate Housewives” creator told television journalists that he was planning on spicing things up with some new co-stars on his series.

“They will move into the old Applewhite house, and one of the gay men will just have a fractious, hateful relationship with Teri Hatcher. We just started writing the episodes, so I probably won’t start casting for another few weeks.”

And now, it appears that Marc Cherry already has a specific pair in mind to tussle with the appetite-impaired Teri Hatcher.

“David and Robbie are perfect to star as the new neighbours’ best friends; the gorgeous, eccentric couple flown over from Blighty.

David’s keen, but though the obvious choice was to work with Tom Cruise, we wanted someone who matches him in height and well, Britishness, so Robbie is the one.”

Ha! Can you imagine how ridiculous of a pairing of Tom Cruise and David Beckham would be? It just wouldn’t look right. It would be as visually incongruous of a match as…well, Tom and Katie.
