Remember Brandon Walker from Days of our Lives?  Nicole’s (Arianne Zuker) sexy brother?  Well, Matt Cedeno who spent some time in Salem has just landed a recurring role in the upcoming Lifetime series, Devious Maids from Desperate Housewives creator, Marc Cherry and co-starring AMC alum, Susan Lucci!

According to Deadline.com, Cedeno along with Melinda Page Hamilton are late casting additions to the dramedy soap.  Both are expected to be featured in the tweaked pilot and will be upped to series regulars if the series gets renewed for a second season.

Cedeno will play Alejandro Reyes, a successful recording artist.  In story, when returning home after three long months on tour, Alejandro just wants to lounge by the pool — while behind his back, Odessa (Melinda Page Hamilton) and the new maid Carmen are maneuvering themselves for Total War.

As previously reported, Devious Maids follows the lives of five maids with ambition and dreams of their own while they work for the rich and famous in Beverly Hills. It stars Ana Ortiz, Judy Reyes, Dania Ramirez, Roselyn Sanchez as well as Susan Lucci.

The rich Latino character is a devious ploy. It’s a smokescreen to detract from the obvious racism of this soap w/c cast all Latina actresses to portray the help. This soap is a version of “the Help” w/o the racial segregation issues and yet this soap discriminates against racial minorities! Now hollywood’s all for racial diversity among the leading ladies bec they’re going to potray the help. How offensive! This is right up hollywood’s racist alley. Majority of the Latino characters have to be poor and doing menial jobs as the help while the white characters are rich. hollywood always… Read more »

Uh, you do know the majority of the “help” in Beverly Hills and other rich suburbs of Los Angeles are Latino, don’ t you? There are very few black housekeepers and maids now (and they used to be the majority). How is this show perpetuating a stereotype of racism when it’s actually going on?

To Mitchell1660: Uh you do know that Asian americans have higher education accomplishments and graduation rates than whites? And that Asian americans have a higher median income than whites?

That should be realistic but of course… Read more »

Michael E Knight auditioned 4 Mark Cherry but I guess he didn’t get a part. I wish he he was going to be on this show. That would really give me a reason to watch.
