EVA LONGORIA plays Jill Marin, a freshly minted Secret Service agent as smart and ambitious as she is beautiful. Assigned to the more experienced agent played by Kiefer Sutherland, Jill was trained by Michael Douglas' character. The three team up to uncover a plot to assassinate the President.
One of the hottest stars in television, Longoria plays Latin sexpot Gabrielle Solis on the ABC mega-hit "Desperate Housewives," which draws more than 27 million viewers weekly. Recently named one of People's "50 Most
Beautiful" and the "#1 Hottest Woman in the World" on Maxim's 2005 annual "Hot 100" list, Longoria was also voted by Variety as one of the "Ten New Faces to Watch," Rolling Stone's "People of the Year," USA Today's "TV's Hot 11" and TV Guide's "New Faces of Fall." She has signed an exclusive worldwide contract as the newest face of L'OrÃ©al beauty products.
In 2005 Longoria wrapped a role as a lawyer in the tough-minded indie film "Harsh Times," alongside Christian Bale and Freddie Rodriguez and directed by David Ayer ("Training Day"). She co-starred as a quirky psychic in the 2004 CBS MOW "The Dead Will Tell," opposite Anne Heche, Jonathan LaPaglia and Kathleen Quinlan. She starred as a detective on "L.A. Dragnet," the modern-day take on the classic police drama by Emmy Award-winning producer Dick Wolf.
Longoria celebrated her theatre debut in the popular comedy farce, "What the Rabbi Saw."
Acknowledging her "comedic flair," Back Stage West proclaimed, "Eva Longoria is sensational."

After graduating from college, she entered a talent contest that brought her to Los Angeles, where she was spotted and subsequently signed by a theatrical agent. Longoria's timing couldn't have been better and she was determined to see where her acting dreams would take her.
After landing roles on "The Bold and the Beautiful," "General Hospital" and co-starring on "Beverly Hills 90210," she auditioned and won the role of Isabella on the popular series "The Young and the Restless."
