at . Comments

Felicity Huffman has signed on for a killer new role.

The former Desperate Housewives star will anchor Fox's Boomerang, a pilot from producer John Wells that centers on a family business... of professionally assassinations.

Huffman will portray this unusual family's matriarch, a woman named Margie Hamilton who is adept at both cooking dinner for her children and murdering a suspected terrorist with the squeeze of a trigger.

The role marks Huffman's first since Desperate Housewives said goodbye last May. As you might imagine, she was one of this pilot season's most sought-after actresses.

Sounds a little like THE SOPRANOS,with Mama Carmela in charge while Tony's in therapy with Dr. Melfi. Nonetheless,this should be a LITTLE more interesting than THE GOOD WIFE. I'll watch out for it.


This seems very interesting :o I would want to watch this! Just because of the plot


This look really interesting. When will the pilot be out?


I am happy for her, love her in DH. I hope it does well.


something less than Lynette Scavo would be a huge disappointment, I love Felicity, hope she does well in the new series.
