EVA LONGORIA PARKER TALKS THE AVENGERS

Eva Longoria Parker, star of ABC's Desperate Housewives, addressed rumors of her being in The Avengers movie during E!'s Red Carpet telecast from the Golden Globes on Sunday night.

Parker, 33, was photographed coming out of Marvel's offices, leading to speculation that she might play the Wasp in the 2011 film.

Parker told E!'s Ryan Seacrest that she hasn't been cast -- yet.

"I would love to do something like that," Parker said during an on-air interview. "If you can get me the job, that would be great."

Parker has been a cast regular since the inception of Desperate Housewives. Her film credits include Over Her Dead Body, The Heartbreak Kid and The Sentinel.
