Empire Enlists Eva Longoria as Villainous Foil for [Spoiler]

Eva Longoria is looking to have Cookie’s ex for lunch.

The Desperate Housewives vet is joining Empire‘s current third season for a multi-episode arc, TVLine has learned exclusively.

She’ll play Charlotte Frost, the formidable director of the all-powerful state gaming commission who has the power to make-or-break Lucious’ (Terrence Howard) dreams of expanding Empire’s reach to Las Vegas. The twist? Beneath Charlotte’s alluring facade, lies a force of darkness and corruption.

Longoria most recently starred in the short-lived NBC comedy Telenovela.

Empire — which has already been picked by Fox up for an 18-episode fourth season — resumes its third season on Wednesday, March 22 at 9/8c.

    I like Eva Longoria but I’ll probably still pass I quit watching part way through season 2. It just became…I’m honestly not even sure. I’m still actually sad about Telenovela I was one of the few who watched it and I actually enjoyed it, it wasn’t Emmy worthy but was light hearted fun.

    A Latina named “Charlotte Frost.”

    Well okay then…

    Never was interested in watching the show empire just not my cup of tea but if the beautiful Eva Longoria will be on count me in!

      I wouldn’t advise watching a show just to see a guest star; Empire is far too complex to get excited about ONE character’s line here and there; that’s just me

    Lee Daniels lost the plot on this show after season 1. I don’t expect realistic scenarios on this but his need to push names over substance is ridiculous.

    • Amy says:

      I agree. The plot became so convoluted after season 1, that it became painful to watch. One week, these two characters were BFF’s and out to get 2 other characters. Then the next week, it flip flops…and the cycle continues. It got stupid, real fast!

    Needs to pay more attention to the substance instead of looking to hire names for the show, thats why it went off a cliff after season 1.

    Eva…hmmm finally.. Empire needs someone like her cuz the show’s pretty messed up now

    I really don’t care for eva, I think she’s overrated. I stop watching all of those crusty shows….same stupid plots, sort of like cornflakes they never change! I like this show way better than the bland,boring and just unrelatable shows on the other networks! Empire is by far more intriguing.
