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.
“Devious Maids,” which is set to premiere sometime in 2013 on Lifetime, also stars Judy Reyes, Dania Ramirez, Edy Ganem, Rebecca Wisocky, Tom Irwin, Mariana Klaveno, Brett Cullen and Drew Van Acker.
