Nikki Cox is ready to go under the knife for CBS' plastic surgery comedy pilot "Fugly."
Also snagging pilot roles for CBS are Beverly D'Angelo and Amber Valetta.
"Fugly" comes from "My Name Is Earl" creator Greg Garcia and focuses on three siblings -- identical twin girls and a brother -- who pool their resources to get one plastic surgery for one of the girls (Cox). The family then heads off to Hollywood to turn her new-found good looks into cash. Marissa Jaret Winokur will play the unaugmented sibling. But wait, you might be thinking, Nikki Cox and Marissa Jaret Winokur don't look anything like siblings. Expect that to be the subject of much mirth.
It was recently announced that Cox won't be returning to her gig on NBC's "Las Vegas," due to budgetary cuts, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Cox previously cut her sitcom teeth on The WB's seminal comedy "Unhappily Ever After."
D'Angelo ("National Lampoon's Vacation") will appear opposite Stephen Dorff in the drama "Skip Tracer," about a guy who tracks down people who attempt to disappear. The Golden Globe and Emmy nominated actress will play the main character's mother, in prison for killing her husband.
Meanwhile, Valletta ("Hitch") will play the vampire sire of the undead private investigator (Alex O'Laughlin) in the "Angel"-esque drama "Twilight," which we guess makes her the pilot's Darla.
