Casting Changes For Show's Improvement
5 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Welcome to Wisteria Lane!!!

What was the difference between the original pilot and the unaired pilot?The producers made some casting changes.They replaced Sheryl Lee,who played Mary Alice,with Brenda Strong.Also,they replaced Michael Reilly Burke,who played Rex,with Steven Culp and Kyle Searles,who played John,with Jesse Metcalfe.

The unaired pilot of Desperate Housewives isn't on the same level as the pilot itself without the casting changes they made.I think that Brenda was better as Mary Alice compared to Sheryl although the latter wasn't a bad one.With regards to Kyle being replaced by Jesse,I think that is a big improvement considering that we needed a hunk to make the affair between John and sexy Gabrielle totally believable.With regards to the actors who played Rex,I am glad that they changed it with Steven Culp since he is a better talent-wise.Overall,it was just a process of improving the show.
