Felicity Huffman’s new housewife is far from desperate.
The Emmy-winning actress has been cast as a suburban assassin in the Fox pilot Boomerang.
The show is about family that works as a hit squad for U.S. government. She’ll play the show’s female lead, Margie, the matriarch of the Hamilton clan, a “briskly professional assassin who can kill and dispose of a suspected terrorist in the afternoon — then switch to wife and mother mode without a hitch.”
