'Desperate Housewives' Exclusive: Nancy Travis is B.A.G.'s mom!

nancy-travisImage Credit: Kristen Noseda/Retna Ltd.; Ron Tom/ABCThis just in: Desperate Housewives has found Brian Austin Green’s mother.

A day after John Schneider was tapped to recur as Green’s DH dad, the ABC soap has cast Nancy Travis to play his mom in multiple episodes, sources confirm to me exclusively.

An alum of Becker and The Bill Engvall Show, Travis will first appear alongside Schneider in this season’s seventh episode.

Green’s character—a hunky contractor who Bree hires to, ahem, remodel her abode—debuts in Housewives’ Sept. 26 premiere.

    Love her! Great casting.

    • Daniel

      I don’t even know who BAG is in the DH universe, except that he’s basically Mike DelFino 2.0. So I Don’t know what her casting really means. Been with the show since the beginning, so I’ll give it a shot though.

        In the DH universe, BAG plays Keith Watson the new love interest for Bree and don’t judge him too soon re Mike DelFino 2.0.

        I think he will be an original and leave a strong mark on DH as well as his family.

        Let’s wait and see = good times.

  • Vicki

    Nice choice…She’s a great actress! Can’t wait to see DH this season :)

  • Bobby F

    She should be in more tv shows or movies.

  • Renata

    Love her! But as BAG’s mom??? They seem to be almost the same age…

    • Tracy

      Excuse me BAG doesn’t look the same age sorry I don’t see it.

      She is very beautiful though…..

      Anyway, with make-up she could look much older.

      I wonder if BAG’s character will have a sister or a brother to join the gang and how hot will they be too?

      This season going to be epic I can just feel it.

      Not long now folks…..

    • kryptogal

      Renata, I agree. She looks like a slightly older sister, not BAG’s mother. BAG is 37, and although he’s hot, he does look 37-years-old. Travis turns 49 on Sept 21, and looks good for her age.

  • Yes Yes Yes

    The best looking new family coming in YYYYYYYYEEEEEESSSSSSS.

    Great news BAG will be staying in Desperate Housewives for a while.

  • RyRyNYC

    Nancy Travis is 48… and her son (Green) is 37… thats ridiculous.

    • Max

      There are young parents around the world having children from 11 years old, it’s not that hard to believe.

      They obviously started young.

      Seriously, WHO CARES it’s a show.

    • DDB

      Judging from some of the other actors who auditioned for the role, I’d say that the character is probably supposed to be in his mid-to-late 20s. BAG could certainly still pull that off.

      • kryptogal

        BAG is hot, but doesn’t look like he’s in his 20s. He looks his age, which is 37.

    • Jethro

      Oh, please, from that picture, Nancy looks like she’s in her 60s, so I can see why she was hired to play his mom.

  • Jo-Jo

    There are far too many hot people coming into this show with attitude great for us viewers = BRING IT.

  • Sue

    Doesn’t she look a little bit like Marcia Cross just a little hahaha.

  • CosmaB

    No way those 2 had a kid that ugly

    • Carol

      When are you picking up your glasses BAG is HOT.

      • Lady G

        Agree, BAG is 100% still hot.

    • Liz

      I completely agree!

  • kam

    BAG is hotter now than on his 90210 days. Also very underrated, he was excellent on “Freddie”..like NPH on HIMYM excellent

    • TJ

      Ha, I thought I was the only one who remembered him on that show. He really was great and funny on it, the best thing about it. Glad ABC still remembers him.

  • dee123

    Who would of thought that after BH 90210 finished B.A.G would be getting the most work!

    • Jane

      I did he does have DJ experience.

      BAG has been working constantly before Megan Fox came on the scene. Some people just didn’t notice.

      He was excellent as Metallo in Smallville and as Derek Reese in Terminator The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

      His time to shine again really cool.

  • mark

    This woman is way to young to play is mom, they should have cast Donna Mills, since she played his mom on Knots Landing and I’d love to see her on Wisteria Lane.

    • hudvalgal

      Yes – that would have been classic! I love that idea….and Donna Mills would fit right in Wisteria Lane……………………

    • kryptogal

      Donna Mills would have been more age appropriate. If the character is a diva, she would have been excellent.

  • Jess

    I always liked her.


    does not know abaout her, but BAG is really hottt….

  • kira

    BAG is ugly as hell,open your eyes
