Eva and Rosario Land Major New Roles

A-lister actresses Eva Longoria Parker and Rosario Dawson continue to test their limits and make some major strides in Hollywood, each scoring parts in two anticipated upcoming dramas.

Eva will star in her first Spanish-speaking role in the film Day of Grace, about kidnapping in Mexico. Although producer Leopoldo Gout refused to spill details about the film, he did say that Eva "read the script and loved the characters and the story's depth." He also revealed that Longoria Parker's character is crucial to solving the central mystery of the movie. Filming has already begun in Mexico.

North of the border, Rosario signed on to star star in Fox’s new runaway train drama Unstoppable. She'll be acting alongside Denzel Washington and Star Trek hottie Chris Pine in the movie about a train carrying a cargo of toxic chemicals that must be stopped before it crashes and decimates an entire town. Incredibly, the story is loosely inspired by true events.

Release dates for both projects have yet to be disclosed.
