‘Quinn’ queen kisses frog

Seymour goes for laffs with 'Men'

Jane Seymour is returning to series television, joining the cast of Jerry Bruckheimer’s upcoming WB laffer “Modern Men.”

Fresh from her comic turn in “Wedding Crashers,” Seymour will again go for laughs as the female lead in “Men.”

Skein — which reps crime king Bruckheimer’s first stab at a sitcom — revolves around three childhood friends, now grown up, who all have female problems and decide to enlist the aid of a blunt-spoken life coach (Seymour) famed for her biting advice.

It’s the first time Seymour has appeared as a series regular since her long-running CBS drama “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman” left the air five years ago. Eye has subsequently aired several “Quinn” reunion pics.

Emmy-winning thesp is replacing Wendie Malick, who was forced to drop out of “Men” after ABC decided to pick up “Jake in Progress” for a second season.

In addition to “Wedding Crashers,” Seymour has wrapped filming on the upcoming feature “Blind Guy,” starring Eddie Kaye Thomas (“American Pie”). She’s also no stranger to the WB, having appeared in multiple episodes of “Smallville” last season.

Deal for “Grown Men” follows Seymour’s decision last month to sign with the Gersh Agency for representation.

Bruckheimer is exec producing the laffer with Marsh McCall (“Just Shoot Me”) and Jonathan Littman.
