Parker Missed Out On Hatcher's Role

WEEDS star MARY-LOUISE PARKER has no regrets about turning down TERI HATCHER's role in DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, insisting both actresses are perfect in their respective roles.

Desperate Housewives creator MARC CHERRY admits he wrote the role of single mother SUSAN MAYER with Parker in mind, but she turned down the role, leaving Hatcher to play her and win a Golden Globe last year (05).

At this year's (06) Globes on Monday (16JAN06), Parker beat Hatcher and her fellow Housewives MARCIA CROSS, FELICITY HUFFMAN and EVA LONGORIA to win the same category.

Parker explains, "I am so flattered to hear him (Cherry) say that. At the time, I felt I could not serve the show as well as someone else could. And I was right.

"Teri is so great in that role and I could not imagine anyone else playing that part. We all ended up where we belong."
