Monday, August 06, 2007 Hit TV show Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry wants football heartthrob David Beckham and singer Robbie Williams to play new neighbours, reportedly a gay couple, in the series.
Cherry has said the two are 'perfect' to play the roles, and would make a 'gorgeous' duo. The writer added that the show hasn't had a wow ever since Jesse Metcalfe left.
"David and Robbie are perfect to star as the new neighbours' best friends; the gorgeous, eccentric couple flown over from Blighty (Britain). We haven't had that kind of wow for the wives since Jesse Metcalfe left and we want it to cause such a stir when they turn out to be together," Contactmusic quoted Cherry, as saying.
Cherry said Beckham and William would match each other's looks and disposition.
"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. They're both funny, game for a laugh and ridiculously macho, so it should work wonderfully... the English are pitch-perfect for sending themselves up," he added.
