Katie Holmes returning to TV!

ABC has just confirmed that IMTA alumni Katie Holmes will return to TV this Fall! She will be a special guest star for the legal dramedy Eli Stone! E! Online said," Obviously, this is a huge coup for a fantastic show, and should provide some well-deserved buzz and higher ratings for the new season." ABC President Steve McPherson just told reporters that Katie will sing! "There's actually some singing and dancing that she does, and it's exquisite," says McPherson of the episode, adding that, "She was fabulous. It's a great role for her." Katie will play a lawyer.

Katie Holmes competed at IMTA twice, in 1993 and 1995 . She participated in seminars and workshops which got her noticed by industry greats Al Onorato, David Guillod and Bobby Moresco. Katie actually shot her first audition at IMTA with the IMTA Video Crew. When Katie returned a couple of years later to present awards at IMTA, she debuted the first fifteen minutes of the pilot episode of Dawson's Creek. The entire ballroom was riveted by this ground-breaking stylish teen drama and Katie received thunderous applause!

On that special night, she gave us a very nice interview saying,"Let's just say a girl from Toledo, Ohio wouldn't end up cast in a Hollywood movie if it weren't for IMTA!" You can read a letter from Katie Holmes on this archived page! She then moved on to feature films such as Teaching Mrs. Tingle, Pieces of April, Batman Begins, and Thank You for Smoking.

Stay tuned this Fall for Katie's guest starring role on Eli Stone!
