‘Desperate Housewives’ couple reunites
It has been nine years since ‘Desperate Housewives’ aired. Due to working closely together for so many years, Teri Hatcher and James Denton have remained close friends even after they stopped playing Susan and Mike.
While talking with Entertainment Weekly, Teri Hatcher talked about the ‘Desperate Housewives’ couple reuniting.
She said: “I think a lot about the fans, and when Jamie suggested that I could be in this movie with him, one of the first things I thought is, ‘Well, the fans are going to love that because Susan lost the love of her life, and there is no replacing the love of your life’”.
Hatcher expressed her joy for the fans who will enjoy this reunion. She continued, that these are different characters with different dynamics. However, the chemistry is the same, and fans will experience the same emotions as these characters and their happy ending.
James Denton felt a strange sense of déjà vu
Hatcher stated that it was so great and felt like the perfect movie to be able to do that in because it had the right amount of drama, comedy, heart, love, and chemistry. All of the things that they used to get to do together. As a result, they get to do them again.
While Denton felt a strange sense of déjà vu since it had been so long since they had worked together, it was surreal when they first sat down and began talking on camera. But yet, it felt like yesterday. Hatcher found it strange that it could feel like so much time had passed while also feeling like no time had passed at all.
James Denton also revealed that working with his former co-star, Teri Hatcher transported him back to his Mike Delfino days. Though he hoped that his character would be more interesting, he found himself feeling like Mike again. He reverted to his reserved, quiet demeanour. Trying to fight those characters from those years was strange.
The PDA level in the holiday film is considerably different from that of ‘Desperate Housewives’. Denton joked while talking with the USA Magazine that a Hallmark bedroom scene is not the same as a ‘Housewives’ bedroom scene, noting that Hatcher wore long sleeves and long pants in the Christmas film.
But, steamy scenes aside, Hatcher promised that fans will get a true sense of her and Denton’s bond in the upcoming film, even if they are now playing Joyce and Ethan Holt. Fans will get everything they desire. They will get the headbutting, the warm, gooey stuff, and everything else they desire.
