The Associated Press has an interview with Mehcad Brooks, featuring everything you might want to know about the handsome newcomer who plays Matthew Applewhite on Desperate Housewives — his age, marital status, how to pronounce his name — everything, that is, except for his take on the prisoner in Matthew and Betty’s basement. ”It’s like those little Russian dolls,” he says of the Housewives subplots. ”Open them up and there’s more inside. The stories are very layered.” Let’s hope some of those layered stories see the Applewhites interacting more with their neighbors; right now, they seem just as much prisoners as the guy they’re keeping locked in the dungeon.
