Damon Lindelof's HBO pilot has just acquired a double dose of "Desperate Housewives" alumni, TheWrap has learned.

Charlie and Max Carver, who played the Scavo twins on ABC's "Desperate Housewives," have been cast in "The Leftovers," the upcoming drama pilot from "Lost" co-creator Damon Lindelof.

The pilot, which is adapted from Tom Perrotta's 2011 novel -- who's writing and executive producing the pilot with Lindelof -- centers around a Rapture-like situation, and those who were left behind by the event.

The Carvers, who also appear on the MTV series "Teen Wolf," will play -- wait for it -- identical twins Scott and Adam Frost.

The pilot stars Justin Theroux, as well as "Lord of the Rings" star Liv Tyler, who plays Meg, a young woman on the verge of getting married, but needing an escape. As a result, she becomes a target for recruitment by members of an enigmatic cult.
