Eva Longoria Goes Retro for Acorn's Romp 'Decline and Fall'
Former Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria is all class in the new miniseries adaptation of Evelyn Waugh’s 1920s-set romp Decline and Fall, which follows the trials of a hapless British schoolteacher (comedian Jack Whitehall). The actress plays Margot Beste-Chetwynde, a forward-thinking, rich, single mother who becomes the apple of the young tutor’s eye. “Eva has that effortless air and breezy confidence that made her perfect to play Margot,” executive producer Ben Cavey says. “It was easy to believe that Jack’s character would fall head over heels in love with her.”
Decline and Fall will be available to stream on Acorn beginning May 15
