Amy Smart Scrubs in for CBS Medical Drama

CBS is getting smart -- Amy Smart, that is.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Smart will star in CBS' untitled medical drama from executive producer John Wells ('ER'; 'Southland'). In it, she will play a "tough nurse" who speaks her mind and is romantically involved with another character.

The show follows a group of medics who travel the country to help less-fortunate people in need of medical care.

While Smart's career has mostly been relegated to film -- she's had a long history with both frat comedies ('Road Trip,' 'Varsity Blues') and romantic comedies ('Just Friends,' 'Win a Date With Tad Hamilton!') -- she's had a few roles on the small screen, including a season of 'Felicity' and a four-episode arc on 'Scrubs' as "Tasty Coma Wife."CBS is getting smart -- Amy Smart, that is.

In other casting news, ABC's pilot 'Matadors' has secured its leads. According to the report, Michelle Borth ('Tell Me That You Love Me,' 'The Forgotten' ) and Jonathan Scarfe ('ER,' 'Raising The Bar') will star in the 'Romeo and Juliet'-inspired legal drama, about dueling families in Chicago. Borth will play Juliana, the show's heroine who finds herself in a (forbidden) love affair with someone from her rival law firm (played by Friday Night Lights' star Zach Gilford).

No word on expected premiere dates for either show.
