Katie Holmes Guest-Stars on Eli Stone!

Tune in tonight to see IMTA alum Katie Holmes guest-star on ABC’s Eli Stone. She will be playing a non-profit attorney in this episode called Grace. Katie displays some of her many talents on this show and according to Stephen McPherson, president of ABC Entertainment, "She was fabulous. It’s a great role for her. There’s actually some singing and dancing that she does, and she’s exquisite.” Katie is currently appearing on Broadway in Arthur Miller’s All My Son which runs from October 16 and runs through January 11, 2009.

Katie 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. 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!"

Tune in tonight and see Katie on Eli Stone!
