LOS ANGELES, March 10 (UPI) -- U.S. actress Rebecca Romijn has been cast as a witch alongside Lindsay Price and Jaime Ray Newman in the drama pilot, "Eastwick."

Romijn, who recently gave birth to twins, is best known for her work on TV's "Ugly Betty" and for her portrayal of blue-hued Mystique in the "X-Men" movies.

The Hollywood Reporter said Romijn will play Roxie, a "Bohemian and sharp-tongued single mother" with magical powers in "Eastwick," which is based on the 1987 feature film, "The Witches of Eastwick," which, in turn, was inspired by John Updike's 1984 novel by the same name.
