Bart will Continue on Desperate Housewives Next Season

Roger Bart, who played the devious pharmacist George Williams on several episodes of Desperate Housewives, will continue in the role in the primetime soap's second season.

Bart has been busy on both stage and screen lately. Although he currently plays Leo Bloom in the Broadway production of The Producers, he originated the part of black-clad Carmen Ghia; Bart will be seen in that role when the feature film version is released at the end of the year. He also just wrapped an independent film called I Just Want Someone to Eat Cheese With, and was seen in the big screen remake of The Stepford Wives last year.

Bart was Tony-nominated for his performance in The Producers, and won in 1999 for his performance as Snoopy in the revival of You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown. His other Broadway credits include The Frogs, Triumph of Love, King David and Big River. He has also appeared on TV's Bram and Alice, and leant his singing voice to two animated films--Disney's Hercules and Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure.

ABC's Desperate Housewives, which became one of this season's biggest (and most-discussed) smashes, is about sex in suburbia and features Teri Hatcher, Marcia Cross, Eva Longoria, Felicity Huffman and Nicollette Sheridan in the title roles. Also featured in the show's cast are James Denton, Andrea Bowen, Ricardo Antonio Chavira, Steven Culp, Jesse Metcalfe, Mark Moses, Brenda Strong and Cody Kasch. The show is of special interest to musical theatre lovers, as each episode is titled after a Sondheim song; Bart appeared in the episodes "Move On," "Every Day a Little Death," "Your Fault," "Fear No More," "Sunday in the Park with George" and "Goodbye for Now." The show airs on Sundays at 9 PM.
