Desperate Housewives alum Mark Deklin has joined the cast of Sex and the City executive producer Darren Star's Good Christians Bitches pilot.

The ABC dramedy project based on Kim Gatlin's 2008 novel of the same name stars 36-year-old Louise Bibb (Iron Man, Iron Man 2) in the lead role of Amanda, a mother of two who after the death of her billionaire husband returns to her Dallas neighborhood, where she is reunited with her former classmates.

In reporting the addition, Deadline Hollywood described Deklin's Blake Caruth as a “rugged, metrosexual cowboy married to one of the classmates, Cricket” (played by Miriam Shor).

According to gay male entertainment website, Blake's sexuality is an open secret among the women of the tight-knit community.

Also on board the project is Broadway diva Kristin Chenoweth, who plays the role of Darlene, the ringleader of the group.

In the pilot script, Darlene spies Blake holding hands with his boyfriend, Booth Becker. Casting for Booth's character has yet to be announced.

Deklin, 43, has recurring roles on CBS' Hawaii Five-0 and TV Land's Hot in Cleveland.
