Michael Reilly Burke

1. – Steven Culp, Desperate Housewives, 2004-2012. Famous for being the serial killer in Ted Bundy, 2002, Burke was cast as Rex Van De Kamp on March 8 2004, and replaced after the first pilot on July 2. Maybe because he had twice played Robert F Kennedy, Culp had, in fact, been first choice when shooting Star Trek: Enterprise. Once done with space, he was asked again to be Marcia Cross’ frustrated husband… dead before the second season. “I knew someone was going to go.” Thereafter, he re-appeared in flashbacks in later seasons.
