The Ugly Betty
star (and expectant mom) gets a make-under to play a country cop in the indie drama Lake City
The best thing about playing a no-nonsense cop for Rebecca Romijn
? Car chases. "I loved pretending I was Boss Hogg!" she says. "It was such a nice break from all the hair and makeup." Romijn, 36, costars with Troy Garity and Sissy Spacek in the independent movie Lake City
, which she filmed before her summer '07 wedding to Jerry O'Connell. Her next role? Motherhood. "I'm taking quite a bit of time off," says Romijn, who's due with twin girls in January. "I'm excited to visit a completely different chapter in my life."
