Page Kennedy, who plays a fugitive from the law on "Desperate Housewives," was fired from the hit ABC drama for improper conduct, a series spokeswoman said Tuesday.
Kennedy, who joined the show this season, was let go Friday after a "thorough investigation by the studio" of the allegations, publicist Janet Daily said. "Desperate Housewives" is produced by Touchstone Television, part of the Walt Disney Co. The alleged misconduct did not involve another cast member, a source close to the production said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
Kennedy played Caleb, a character shrouded in mystery and seen only briefly as he was held captive in the basement of Wisteria Lane newcomer Betty Applewhite (Alfre Woodard).
The role of Caleb is being recast, Daily said. Kennedy's final appearance on the ABC series is Sunday. A call to his agent for comment was not immediately returned.
