'Twilight' vamp Rachelle Lefevre sinks teeth into CBS medical drama

rachelle-lefevre-320.jpgLife after "Twilight"? Yes, says Rachelle Lefevre.

The former "Twilight" vampire will play the lead, a young and competent doctor,  in John Wells' CBS medical drama, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The ensemble drama follows the adventures of a mobile medical team that goes around the country, helping in medical crises.

Lefevre is best known to fans as the redheaded vampire Victoria from the first two "Twilight" films. She was replaced by Bryce Dallas Howard for the upcoming sequel "Eclipse."

Lefevre has worked with CBS before on its short-lived "Swingtown."

In other pilot casting news, NBC's "The Strip" has added Carrie Wiita and Andrea Savage. The comedy stars Tom Lennon as a former child star who becomes the owner of a bar that's similar to Hooters off the Las Vegas strip.
