Eva Longoria has found her lead cast for her upcoming Cheetos movie.
Flamin’ Hot tells the true life story of Richard Montanez, the Frito Lay janitor, Richard Montanez, who took inspiration from his Mexican American heritage to create Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, the snack that disrupted the food industry and became a pop culture phenomenon.
Annie is set to play his wife, Judy, in the movie.
“It has been my biggest priority to make sure we are telling Richard Montañez’s story authentically,” Eva shared in a statement. “I am so happy to have two extremely talented and fellow Mexican-Americans on board in these pivotal roles. Jesse and Annie have a deep understanding of our community and will be able to help tell this story of great importance for our culture.”
