Denton Inspires Eighth-Grade Graduates
Desperate Housewives hunk James Denton urged teenage students in his nephew's class to follow their dreams as he addressed a graduation ceremony on Monday (12JUN06). Denton, who plays sexy plumber Mike Delfino on the hit show, delivered a four-minute speech to nearly 100 eighth graders (13-14 year old) leaving Nashville, Tennessee's Poplar Grove School for high school. He said, "My only words are to find something you love to do and chase it and enjoy it. Do what you love to do and believe in yourself. "Maybe you can wear jeans for a living and make out with (Desperate Housewives co-star) Teri Hatcher." Denton's guest appearance provoked such interest the school were forced to screen the audience to limit crowd numbers.
