Guy in the basement fired from "Desperate Housewives"

LOS ANGELES (AP)_The mysterious guy in the basement has been fired from "Desperate Housewives."

Page Kennedy's firing is just as mysterious as his character. A spokeswoman for the show says Kennedy was let go for improper conduct. She wouldn't be more specific. However, she did say Kennedy was fired after a "thorough investigation by the studio."

Kennedy played Caleb, who's being held captive in the basement by a character played by Alfre Woodard. He's only been seen briefly. His last appearance will be Sunday.

The spokeswoman says Caleb will be recast.
