Darren McMullen joins House Husbands

2014-02-13_1119TV presenter Darren McMullen will try his hand as a primetime actor as he joins Nine’s cast of House Husbands.

The Voice host will play ‘a love interest who ruffles feathers’ in the series, joining recently-announced cast members Rachel Griffiths and local Lincoln Lewis.

McMullen, who has previously been producer and entertainment journalist, has a sole acting credit on IMDb playing a TV presenter on UK series The Magicians.

“Acting has always been a big passion of mine. For many years it had to take a back seat when my presenting roles took off around the world. I promised myself at the end of last year that I was going to focus more energy on pursuing interesting roles to sink my teeth into,” McMullen said.

“I’m excited to be able to play such a meaty role on House Husbands and to be able to work alongside such an esteemed cast in an award-winning drama. I can’t wait to show people another side to me.”

He is currently hosting observational series Darren McMullen’s Outsiders for National Geographic.

House Husbands returns later this year.


  1. Jesus Christ. Did you see this guy in those awful spots during the Voice for whatever car they were advertising… He was abysmal. Couldn’t act his way out of a paper bag. This is typical network stupidity. I hope the 37 viewers he attract enjoy the show. Moronic

    Weird casting choice but see the main problem producers had was there was 4 couples on the show…can’t have everything same old so have to change relationships up…axe Nicola and Tom to get new storylines and supposed new life.

    Not sure why this had to follow though, seriously there could of been other storylines they could of used!

  3. @ matricite. You may have missed the news, but the actor playing Tom (Tim Campbell) is not having his contract renewed and will not appear in Season 3. So I have already lost interest and the increasing number of cast additions makes me wonder if they are still doing 13 episodes. It is sounding like an already full cast….
