ABC's pilot "Eastwick" has completed its trio of witches, adding former "Ugly Betty" actress Rebecca Romijn to its cast.
In the drama, based on John Updike's novel "The Witches of Eastwick" and its 1987 film adaptation, Romijn will play a single mother with a cutting sense of humor, the showbiz trade papers report. She joins Jaime Ray Newman and Lindsay Price -- her former co-star in The WB's "Pepper Dennis" -- as the show's three leads; Veronica Cartwright is also in the cast.
The pilot will be Romijn's first TV work since leaving "Ugly Betty" -- where she played Alexis (formerly Alex) Meade -- earlier this season for maternity leave. She gave birth to twins with husband Jerry O'Connell in December.
In addition to "Ugly Betty" and "Pepper Dennis," Romijn had a recurring role on "Just Shoot Me" in the late '90s. She also guested on O'Connell's show "Carpoolers" last season.
Her movie credits include the "X-Men" films, "The Punisher" and "Lake City."
