Has anybody seen America Ferrera since "Ugly Betty" ended? Ever since the sitcom went off air in mid-2010, Ferrera has been seemingly off the radar in terms of projects we genuinely care about (though she did lend her voice to the beloved animated film "How To Train Your Dragon").

Variety is reporting that Ferrera has attached herself to the cop drama "End Of Watch," where she'll be seen alongside Jake Gyllenhaal and Anna Kendrick. Directed by David Ayer, the film follows the friendship of two cops in the LAPD, and that's pretty much all we know about it so far. Ferrera is set to play a female cop with the last name of Orozco, which should be an interesting turn for this actress best known for her comedic roles in 'Betty' and those "Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants" movies.

Ayer isn't exactly a director we like, mostly due to the fact that his past directorial efforts "Harsh Times" and "Street Kings" felt like unabashed Michael Mann posturing, but then again with an ensemble that will also include the underrated Michael Pena, this could be worth a look.

This is great news for Ferrera, who's excellent work on "Ugly Betty" won her and Emmy and Golden Globe right before people seemed to stop watching. She's a talented actress, and perhaps in an ensemble like this she could really shine.
