Christian Slater is set to star in 'Desperate Housewives'.
The Hollywood heartthrob has reportedly been in talks with the show's bosses about appearing in the hit US drama.
It is not yet known whether the role will be a one-off cameo or permanent, but it is believed the producers are keen to sign up the 'True Romance' actor for a number of episodes.
The part was allegedly initially created for 'James Bond' star Pierce Brosnan, but the Irish actor reportedly scuppered his chances after criticising the show's main star Teri Hatcher.
Bronsan recently criticised the beautiful brunette for constantly keeping him waiting when she played a Bond girl in 1997's 'Tomorrow Never Dies'.
He said at the time: "I got very upset with her. She was always keeping me waiting for hours. I must admit I let slip a few words which weren't very nice."
