Eva Longoria has joined the cast of the forthcoming Tessa Thompson drama “Sylvie.”
From writer-director Eugene Ashe, the indie follows a young woman (Thompson) who meets an aspiring saxophonist (former NFL player and actor Nnamdi Asomugha) working at her father’s Harlem record shop in the storied New York jazz age of the late ’50s.

Asomugha is producing through his iAm21 Entertainment banner alongside Jonathan Baker (“The Banker”), Gabrielle Glore (“Dirty Laundry”), and Matthew Thurm (“Crown Heights”).
