Mike Farrell And Polly Bergen Joins Desperate Housewives
Michael Ausiello reports that veteran actress Polly Bergen has been cast as Lynette’s saucy mother. She’ll first appear in the May 20 season finale to “help” Lynette deal with a life-threatening health crisis. “She shows up smoking and drinking,” says my spy. “It should be a really fun character.” Additionally, M*A*S*H alum Mike Farrell has been tapped to play Victor’s gazillionaire dad (and Gaby’s soon-to-be father-in-law). He’ll also show up in the finale.
