Eva Longoria says unlike Clint Eastwood she will not be bringing out any empty chairs when she speaks to her party’s convention tomorrow. “People keep comparing us because we are both from the entertainment industry and (sic) he had a very different narrative,” the former Desperate Housewives actress told CNN’s Piers Morgan tonight at the DNC. “I come from a very different position than Clint Eastwood,” said the long time Barack Obama supporter and Latino outreach activist. “It was interesting yeah but I haven’t seen the whole thing so it’s not fair for me to judge it,” Longoria said of Eastwood’s unsuccessful appearance as the surprise speaker at the GOP convention last Thursday in Tampa. Longoria, who is a co-chair of the Obama reelection campaign, is scheduled to speak tomorrow night to the delegates in Charlotte, North Carolina on the subject of Hispanic women and education. Longoria isn’t the only Hollywood star taking the stage in Charlotte this week. Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman and Kerry Washington are reportedly also going to address the convention on Thursday before President Obama. Last night Harold & Kumar star Kal Penn spoke to the Democrats on the opening night of the convention. Penn, who had a stint as an associate director for the administration’s Office Of Public Engagement, made fun of Eastwood by thanking the invisible man in the chair – a reference to the empty chair that was supposed to symbolize Obama that Eastwood did a mock interview with in Tampa.
