Desperate Housewives

Uh-oh, someone’s going to need some help getting off the sauce in the new season of Desperate Housewives.

EW has learned exclusively that one of the husbands will start attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings when the ABC drama returns for its final season Sept. 25. He’ll get some much-needed help from a sponsor named Allen, who will be played by Scott Lawrence (pictured). Allen attends meetings regularly and will give advice to this troubled new attendee.

Lawrence is a familiar face on TV, having appeared on such shows as Law & Order: LA, Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, and NCIS.

So which hubby do you think will hit the bottle this year?
