Katie Holmes comes to “Eli Stone”


Former “Dawson’s Creek” star, Katie Holmes, is returning to television this fall for an episode of “Eli Stone”. Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello has:

In arguably the biggest piece of stunt casting since How I Met Your Mother lassoed Britney Spears, sources confirm to me exclusively that Katie Holmes is returning to the small screen this fall on ABC’s sophomore drama, Eli Stone. A spokesperson for the show declined to comment, but I’m told Suri’s mama is on board for one episode.

I’m not a fan at all of Katie Holmes; I’ve never liked her performance (except for maybe “Ice Storm”). But, this is where stunt-casting could actually be good for the show. “Eli Stone” is one of the great dramas currently on television, but hasn’t gotten the viewership it needs. Hopefully Katie’s single episode will bring in new viewers, and they’ll stay.
