Howard agreed to hear her read for a part, not intending to give her a role, but was stunned by her talent and gave her the part of Sara Wilson. In a recent interview about Cinderella Man, Rosemarie said "It was the best ever – such a thrill to help tell that story." She has also stated it was one of her favourite experiences as an actor.

In 2007, DeWitt was cast in the AMC drama Mad Men, a depiction of the advertising world in the '60s.
