desperatehousewives-pic1Movie Web recently interviewed the 15 year-old Josh Moore, who portrays Parker Scavo – son of Lynette and Tom Scavo in Desperate Housewives.

On the episode that they’re currently filming….

Josh Moore:
We are filming episode nine of Season Six. It’s going really well, I think, we’re making really good progress. A couple of weeks ago the writers had a little writer hiatus so they took a little week off. We’re not quite to halfway through the season. We’re filming 23 episodes this season, so we’re moving along.

On what we’re going to expect from Parker…

Josh Moore: Well, just more of his charming wit (Laughs) and good statements. Mostly just contributing to the family, I guess. I think we all have our own special part and he’s definitely keeping up with his part.

On the things he heard about his character and the show as a whole…

Josh Moore: As far as my character goes, I’m not sure, but as far as the show, the game plan right now is… well, it was originally supposed to be seven (years) and then Marc said that there has been so much success that they want to take it to nine. I think that’s what they’re planning on now, which would be great and amazing to do nine seasons. In this current climate, nine seasons is huge and I feel really lucky to have that kind of future, down-the-road kind of thing.

On upcoming guest stars…

Josh Moore: Guest stars… well, I’m not really sure on guest stars. I don’t think there are going to be too many huge surprises with that, but we do have a few new characters this season. The storylines are really developing for them and I think that’s really cool that we have these new younger families coming on the street. It’s really cool.

On Drea de Mateo’s character, Angie, and the unfolding storyline…

Josh Moore: Yeah, it’s been such a great storyline and I think she’s amazing. She’s brilliant on screen and her son on the show, his name is Beau and he’s great. He’s such a blast to hang out with on the set, but the storyline adds a whole thing where you don’t know throughout the whole season, and it’s great to drag it out this long. The story keeps unfolding and unfolding and it adds a whole new dimension to the show.

On whether he’s pitching some mysteries that might be used in the future seasons with Parker…

Josh Moore: Well, I’m kind of hoping that he’s going to break out of his little shell and do something crazy. That’s what I’m hoping. But, at the same time, I don’t want it to be something potentially life-threatening that would get me killed off the show (Laughs). So you’ve got to be careful with what you say, right?

On his message to the fans and what can we expect in the upcoming episodes of the show…

Josh Moore: First off, I just want to say thank you to our fans for watching. Every viewer counts, as you know, and that’s why we still have a show. Just keep watching, because it only gets better. That’s all I can say.
