Parker Happy She Passed On Desperate Housewives
BOYS ON THE SIDE star MARY LOUISE PARKER is happy she passed on playing Teri Hatcher's role on Desperate Housewives, even though she knew the show was going to be a huge hit. The actress turned down the part of SUSAN MAYER because she didn't feel like it was a good fit for her. She explains, "I didn't feel like it was my part. I felt like it was some other actress' part. "I think it fits her (Hatcher) wonderfully. I think she's so perfect for it, I'm so happy for her. "I certainly don't begrudge her her success. I don't think I really fit in that world necessarily. I don't like to think in terms of regret."
