Larry Hagman will be paying a visit to Wisteria Lane for a guest role on Desperate Housewives.
Larry will play a love interest of Stella Wingfield, who is played by Polly Bergen.
Stella is the mother of the character played by series star Felicity Huffman.
The 79-year-old Hagman, best-known as ruthless oil baron J.R. Ewing in the long-running US series Dallas, more recently had a recurring role on Nip/Tuck.
US network ABC didn't say how soon Larry would arrive on Desperate Housewives or how many episodes he has signed up for.
