Desperate Housewives may be coming to an end this season… But that doesn’t mean an end to Eva Longoria acting career.
The 36-year-old Mexican-American actress has signed on to star in The Truth, an action thriller from writer/director Damian Lee. She’ll appear opposite 55-year-old Cuban-American actor Andy Garcia and Forest Whitaker.
Garcia will play a former CIA operative-turned-political talk show host hired by a corporate whistleblower, played by Longoria, to expose her company’s cover-up of a South American village massacre.
This isn’t Longoria’s first foray into action… She previously starred opposite Michael Douglas and Kiefer Sutherland in The Sentinel, and opposite Christian Bale in Harsh Times.
The Truth is set to start shooting in Ontario, Canada and the Caribbean.
