Where you've seen her: The Tony and Emmy winner played Olive Snook on ABC's critically acclaimed "Pushing Daisies," the good witch in Broadway's "Wicked" and April Rhodes, the drunken alumni with a golden voice, on "Glee." Character on this show: Chenoweth will play Darlene Cockburn, a caustic society girl who aims to make a returning Dallas expat's life miserable in the ABC drama based on Kim Gatlin's book "Good Christian Bitches." Character similarities: Her previous casting as a sassy (but snide) pepster makes Chenoweth a shoo-in as a believable Southern mean girl. No sign of a good witch in sight. Watch a preview here.
