Eva Longoria might be sad about her hit show Desperate Housewives coming to an end this year, but the 36-year-old Mexican American actress will not be unemployed for long. Variety reports that Longoria already has four film projects lined up like dominoes, two of which she’ll also produce!
The first is an independent drama titled Long Time Gone, in which Longoria will play a mistress. Sarah Siegel-Magness, who produced the award-winning 2009 film Precious, will direct the film. In Who Gets the Dog, Longoria will play a woman named Olive who is at war with her ex over who keeps their beloved poodle. Besides starring in the film, Longoria has also signed on as a producer for the comedy.
Longoria will also star alongside Brendan Fraser as his wife in Four Kings, a historical drama set during the French and Indian War, which took place from 1754-1763. The drama, directed by Damian Lee, is about a wealthy British man who hopes to create a utopian society with his wife by backing the war between Great Britain and France.
Last but not least is an animated series by Hulu, titled Child Support, in which Longoria will lend her voice to the lead role. Longoria’s character is Marley Wiener—an irresponsible suburban mother who basically improvises her way through parenting. Think the female version of Peter Griffin, the main character on Fox's Family Guy.
Earlier this summer and before the end of Desperate Housewives was confirmed, Longoria spoke to Latina.com at the National Council of La Raza conference about the last season of the show, "Television is all about the next new best thing. But I’m going to be with this job as long as it will go." Spoken like a true professional!
