Eva Longoria is looking to have Cookie’s ex. The Desperate Housewives vet is joining Empire‘s current third season for a multi-episode arc.
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.
TVLine first reported the news.
