We’ve seen her do comedy, we’ve seen her do drama, but can you picture Eva Longoria as a female action star? Our favorite Desperate Housewife is looking to kick some major butt with a role in the explosive new film The Truth.
Mixing in elements of James Bond espionage with Erin Brockovich activism,The Truth follows the life of an ex-CIA operative who uncovers corporate corruption while living in South America. Longoria will play the lead alongside heavies like Andy Garcia and Forest Whitaker.
Throwing in a bit of nolstagia, Scarface’s Steven Bauer has also been added to the cast along with Real Steel bad guy Kevin Durand. Damian Lee will direct the movie, which will be shot in the Dominican Republic.
Of course if you want your fill of Eva sooner than that, you can look for her in the film Four Kings with Brendan Fraser and the animated Hulu series Child Support. Both projects should be out by early next year.
