Before Being ‘Desperate,’ James Denton Was ‘Pretender’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – James Denton is known to most couch potatoes as Teri Hatcher’s on-again, off-again crush on Desperate Housewives.

But there are many people who are scared to death of him, thanks to a role as evil “Mr. Lyle” on the 1990s drama, The Pretender.

Denton joined The Pretender on Season 2 – which hits DVD on Tuesday (Sep. 20) – and figures he did a good job at being bad because, he confesses, “I’ve had people get off of elevators I was on.”

One woman even told him, “I know you’re an actor but I can’t be in the elevator with you.”

Denton laughs at the memory but figures if he was creepy enough to keep her off the elevator, he was doing his job.

Desperate Housewives has its season premiere Sept. 25.
