Anna FrielAnna Friel is making the switch from 'Pushing Daisies' to 'Dark Fields.'

The star of the short-lived ABC comedy has just signed on to play Bradley Cooper's ex-wife in the thriller, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The film, which also stars Robert De Niro and Abbie Cornish, is about a struggling writer (Cooper) who comes across a secret drug that boosts his intelligence. He uses it to gain fame and fortune, however the drug's side effects -- including something called "trip-switching," in which time moves in what the Hollywood Reporter calls "a stop motion quality"-- prove lethal.
