Janet Montgomery and Greg Grunberg have joined the casts of two different ABC pilot.

The actress (Made in Jersey) will portray the female lead in Gothica, an unusual drama set in modern times that incorporates legends such as Dracula, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Frankenstein. Sounds like a spin on Once Upon a Time to us.

Montgomery has been cast as Grace Van Helsing, the daughter of this famous vampire hunter who returns to run her family's newspaper.

Grunberg, meanwhile, will star opposite Greg Kinnear on Doubt, the legal drama from David Shore that focuses on attorney who relies in street smarts to game the system.

The popular, busy actor (Love Bites, Vegas, The Client List) will come on board as the main character's developmentally disabled (yet high-functioning) older brother Mark. He as the receptionist at his sibling's law firm and possesses an undying belief in Kinnear's lawyer.
