    Default Katie Holmes to Play Manhattan Socialite in Upcoming ABC Pilot

    Katie Holmes to Play Manhattan Socialite in Upcoming ABC Pilot

    With her fashion line closed, Katie Holmes is focused on acting, returning to TV in her first starring role since Dawson's Creek.

    Holmes will play an "Audrey Hepburn-esque" New York City socialite in an untitled ABC drama, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Beautiful Creatures director Richard LaGravenese will write and executive-produce the show.

    Holmes, 35, has been busy with movie projects and TV guest spots since the teen cult classic Dawson's Creek ended in 2003. After splitting from ex-husband Tom Cruise, she moved with daughter Suri, 7˝, to New York – a fitting location for the ABC pilot, which will follow the rivalry between two influential and manipulative Manhattan women.

    But in real life, Holmes happily keeps things low-key in the Big Apple.

    "I love the theater, the galleries in my neighborhood. Stuff [like] that is so much of what makes me love this city," she told PEOPLE in February. "I love the Knicks. I love talking to my neighbors in the elevator. I like feeling a part of something big."

    as long as the character is fairly bland, she should be fine

    Maybe they will have the main character fall in love with a closeted member of a cult and she will help him come out, and get out.

    She's so boring, she married the craziest dude in Hollywood and she's still a snoozefest.

    I like her too. She reminds me of some of my friends, who are not nearly as boring once you get to know them.

    I don't like her one bit, so I hope it gets picked up, then dropped after two episodes.

    With her track record since DC, it probably will.

    I'm embarrassed to be excited about this.

    And speaking of Co$bots, they have started advertising during prime time on our main commercial TV channels recently, not just the late night whacko public access channels. It must be costing mucho dinero. Let technology help you discover your spiritual potential ( for a fee, natch) or some other bulltish.

    All I remember of those 80's commercials were the visuals of volcanoes exploding and spewing lava. Booooo.

    Melissa George to take down Katie Holmes in ABC drama pilot
    3 hours ago

    Melissa George has landed the lead role in a drama in development at ABC.

    The Australian actress has joined the cast of an untitled drama pilot from Richard LaGravenese, the screenwriter who penned "Behind the Candelabra." Currently on the cast of "The Good Wife," Melissa George will play the antagonist to Katie Holmes' character in this project loosely based on "Dangerous Liaisons."

    After supporting roles on "Friends," "Alias" and "In Treatment" among other shows, Melissa George has landed the lead this time. In the pilot ordered by ABC, the actress will play Margot Worth Cole, a beautiful and captivating woman who knows how to attract everyone's attention on entering a room.

    This New York socialite begins to fear for her social status as her divorce from the wealthy Anderson Cole approaches. Then, when Margot figures out that her ex-husband has cheated her out of her due in the divorce agreements, she decides to seek revenge with the help of her former lover Philip, the only person she sees as her equal.

    Katie Holmes has been cast in the role of the well-respected Ann, an Audrey Hepburn-like figure who runs a non-profit with her husband to bring clean water to villages in Africa. The character will become a target for Margot and Philip, who become set on ruining her seemingly perfect marriage following a dare.

    Rufus Sewell ("The Pillars of the Earth") will also appear in the pilot in the role of Philip Fitzgerald Julien, the male lead. Israeli actor Oded Fehr ("Resident Evil") will play Anderson Cole, Margot's ex-husband.
