Eli Stone Boss: Katie Holmes Will "Influence" Stories
By Kristin Dos Santos
ABC's Eli Stone (Jonny Lee Miller) has his aneurysm backnot to mention his prophetic visions. The network has requested more episodes of the series, and Stone show runner Marc Guggenheim is here to share secrets.
Find out directly from the man in charge about Eli's love life, how Katie Holmes' appearance changes the whole season and what Seal's guest gig means for the series...
Katie Holmes Is the New Eli: Marc says, "I like to call [Katie's character Grace] She-li because she's kind of the female version of Eli...She's a lawyer who changed her life and went in a much more public-interest, pro-bono direction. She kind of represents another way Eli could have gone with his whole change of life."
Does Katie stick around? "Yeah, Grace sort of remains in the background throughout the year, and then she moves large toward the middle half of the season. The relationship that's established is obviously a very important one to Eli, and I don't think we would be being truthful with either the show or his character if we didn't occasionally allow Grace to influence the scenes that Eli's in and the experience that he's going through."
