'Dallas' Hires 'Desperate Housewives' Star as Bobby's Wife


Brenda Strong


Brenda Strong who has been narrating 'Desperate' since season 1 would get more screen time in the remake project as Ann Ewing.

"Dallas" takes another chunk out of "Desperate Housewives". After Jesse Metcalfe and Josh Henderson, the TNT remake has tapped Brenda Strong, who plays Mary Alice Young on the ABC drama, as one of Bobby Ewing's wives named Ann.

Bobby is played once again by Patrick Duffy. In the original series, Bobby wed Pam and April Stevens. Strong's Ann would be his latest wife who has "just as much backbone as Bobby's deceased mama, Miss Ellie," TV Guide said.

Victoria Principal, who played Pam in the original series, said she may be interested to reprise her character but the actress would like the writers to make a sensible plot to explain her 25 years of absence from Bobby's life.

Shooting begins in Texas later this month. Metcalfe is playing Christopher, the all-grown-up son of Bobby and Pam. Larry Hagman reprises role as J.R. whose son John is played by Henderson. Jordana Brewster is set to create a love triangle between Christopher and John.
