The actress who rose to fame on ABC’s “Desperate Housewives” is set to appear on another primetime network soap.
FOX confirms that Eva Longoria will guest star on “Empire” this spring.
Longoria will play Charlotte Frost, the powerful director of the state gaming commission who can thwart Lucious’ plan to expand Empire into Las Vegas.
“Beneath her alluring facade, lies a force of darkness and corruption,” adds FOX regarding the character.
“Empire” returns March 22.
“After launching a deadly missile at Angelo, Lucious announces his new music project, Inferno, and puts everyone on notice — especially Cookie, who then vows to knock him off his throne for good. The two engage in an epic clash — fueled by a history of love, loyalty and betrayal,” says FOX regarding what else to expect in the second half of season three.
In addition to Longoria, Taye Diggs, Phylicia Rashad, Rumer Willis and Nia Long will also guest this spring.
