The best-known incarnation of The Witches of Eastwick was the 1987 movie starring Michelle Pfeiffer, Susan Sarandon and Cher as the witches, with Jack Nicholson as the devil. ABC is taking another stab at the John Updike book with its new fall series Eastwick. Rebecca Romijn, Lindsay Price and Jaime Ray Newman play the witches now, and Romijn embraces her predecessor.
"I play Roxie, who's the same character as Cher from the movie," Romijn said in a group interview on Aug. 8 in Pasadena, Calif., as part of the Television Critics Association fall press tour. "Huge shoes to fill, but honestly, getting to say that I play Cher, I feel like that's bragging rights there. It's more exciting to say I play Cher than to say I play a witch, which was already really exciting to say."
