Wonderful World of Weird


It was at the end of Yom Kippur services in North Hollywood that comic actor Larry Miller explained to a Journal reporter his new role on ABC's eye-winking drama, "Desperate Housewives."

Said Miller, smiling broadly: "I play the neighborhood pornographer!"

Not quite. Miller and Meagan Fay play the Harpers, a frisky Wisteria Lane couple whose homemade video of themselves procreating is viewed accidentally by the show's teenage characters.

"It's fun in the way 'Desperate Housewives' is fun," Miller said.

The episode airs Nov. 13.

Miller reported that life is wonderfully weird: "Desperate Housewives" exteriors for Wisteria Lane are shot on Universal Studios' Colonial Drive, home to the same house used for exteriors on ABC's 1958-63 sitcom, "Leave It to Beaver." One day, Miller and other cast members got free on-set ice cream from Long Island Lolita's Joey Buttafuoco, who now runs a local fleet of ice cream trucks.

"I close my eyes and hold up my arms and I spin," Miller said. "I absolutely adore every second of life."
