This news certainly shocked me. Kyle MacLachlan or “Orson Hodge” will be leaving ‘Desperate Housewives’ after four seasons with the show. If you watch ‘Desperate Housewives’, you might have noticed that his character is extremely under-used, so either he was fired because Marc Cherry couldn’t dream up a compelling story-line, or he asked to leave because he felt creatively stifled. Either way, I’m disappointed. Perhaps it’s my love for ‘Sex and the City’ that attached me to his character, but its always upsetting when a series regular leaves the show.
