Amy Smart nurses CBS pilot role
Aussie Sullivan Stapleton also lands an CBS pilot lead
Recent pilot season favorite Amy Smart has has landed her fourth pilot lead role in five years.
Smart will play a tough nurse who stands up to the doctors on her team (and sleeps with one of them). You know... Just like the nurses in "Nurse Jackie," "Mercy" and "Hawthorne."
In the 2009 pilot season, Smart ("Varsity Blues") starred in "See Kate Run" for ABC. In 2008, she did "The Meant to Be's" for CBS. Her 2006 pilot, "Smith," was ordered to series by CBS, but lasted only three episodes.
Sullivan, a veteran of numerous Aussie productions, has a scene stealing role in the Sundance award-winning crime thriller "Animal Kingdom."
