Sam Page is going toe-to-toe with another fiery redhead.

The actor, who plays the wayward husband of Christina Hendricks’ Joan on Mad Men, is joining Desperate Housewives for a multi-episode arc as Jeremy, a well-trained cook who idolizes Bree (Marcia Cross) and her old-fashioned values.

Page’s first episode is slated to air in late February. Coincidentally, that’s right around the time the in-demand Shark alum kicks off a recurring role on ABC Family’s Greek as a campaign manager and potential spoiler in the Cappie/Casey romance.
