Romijn grabs broom for ABC's 'Eastwick'
EmptyIn the latest round of pilot castings, Rebecca Romijn has been tapped as the third witch on ABC's drama pilot "Eastwick" and Matt Barr has been tapped to star in the CW's "Gossip Girl" spinoff.
Meanwhile, four CBS pilots have beefed up their casts: Deanna Dunagan, Missi Pyle and Chris Parnell have been cast in "Big D"; Jeremy Northam has joined "Miami Trauma"; Saffron Burrows, Jesse Bradford and Gaby Hoffmann have been added to "The Eastmans"; and Matt Czuchry has come aboard "The Good Wife."
WBTV's "Eastwick" revolves around three young witches (Romijn, Lindsay Price, Jaime Ray Newman) who come into their powers. Romijn will play Roxie, a Bohemian and sharp-tongued single mother.
The UTA-repped actress recently co-starred on "Ugly Betty."
On the "Gossip Girl" spinoff, about the teen years of Lily Rhodes (Brittany Snow), Barr, repped by Luber Roklin Entertainment, will play her love interest, a rich Malibu prince.
In WBTV's "Big D," a New York couple moves to the husband's hometown of Dallas, where his Southern belle mother (Dunagan) makes life complicated for his East Coast wife. Pyle will play the husband's sister, who is prone to emotional displays. Parnell is in negotiations to play her husband, a preacher.
WBTV/Bruckheimer's "Trauma" is an ensemble medical action project set at a Miami trauma center. Northam, repped by CAA and the U.K.'s MF, will play a likable but enigmatic new doctor on the trauma ward.
On WBTV's "Eastmans," about a complicated family of doctors, Burrows will play Anna Eastman, who is trying to develop a cure for autism while grappling with the fact her child might have the disorder.
Hoffmann, repped by Don Buchwald and Barking Dog, and Bradford, repped by UTA and Jason Barrett, will play twins Sally and Seth Eastman. She is a pathologist; he had his license suspended because of a Vicodin addiction.
CBS Par's "Wife" centers on a politician's wife (Julianna Margulies) who gets a job as a junior associate at a top law firm. Czuchry, repped by Gersh and the Collective, will play the other first-year associate at the firm, a handsome Harvard grad. (partialdiff)
