Emmy winner Dana Delany might be co-starring on ABC's Desperate Housewives after all, and she might be joined on the hit dramedy by Nathan Fillion and Lyndsy Fonseca.

Delany, who reportedly was the first choice for the role of Bree but turned down the pilot, as well as Drive star Fillion are in talks and Fonseca is in negotiations to join the cast of the ABC Studios-produced Housewives next season as regulars.

Delany and Fillion would play a woman and her much younger husband who move to Wisteria Lane with the woman's daughter (Fonseca).

Housewives creator/exec producer Marc Cherry, said to be behind the efforts to cast Delany as Bree in the pilot, also is the one trying to get her to play the new character, sources said.

Delany, a double Emmy winner for China Beach, most recently starred on NBC's drama Kidnapped.

Fillion is on the big screen in the feature film Waitress. In addition to his starring role on Fox's midseason drama Drive, Fillion is known for playing the lead in Fox's sci-fi drama Firefly and the subsequent feature film Serenity.

Fonseca recently landed a recurring role on NBC's hit Heroes. Her credits also include HBO's Big Love. She is repped by Gersh and Sager Management.
