Deadline is reporting that former “Days of our Lives” star Matt Cedeno (ex-Brandon Walker) has landed a recurring role on Lifetime’s “Devious Maids,” which stars Susan Lucci (“All My Children”), Ana Ortiz (“Ugly Betty”), Roselyn Sanchez (“Without a Trace”), Grant Show (“Melrose Place”) and Brianna Brown (“General Hospital”). Cedeno is said to be featured in the tweaked pilot, which was originally conceived as a possible series for ABC during last seasons development cycle, and will likely be upped to series regular if the show is picked up by Lifetime for a second season. Cedeno will play the role of Alejandro Reyes, “a successful recording artist. Back home after three long months on tour, Alejandro wants to lounge by the pool – while behind his back, Odessa and the new maid Carmen are maneuvering themselves for Total War.”
Melinda Page Hamilton, who is also joining the series in a recurring capacity and will be upped to regular if the show is picked up, will play the role of Odessa. Odessa is a cold-blooded and controlling housekeeper as evidenced by her plans for Alejandro. Sanchez will portray Odessa’s war buddy Carmen.
