Katie Holmes to guest star on `Eli Stone'

Katie Holmes is coming back to TV - and yes, there's a "Dawson's Creek" connection.

The actress and wife of Tom Cruise will guest star as a nonprofit attorney in one episode of the legal dramedy "Eli Stone," ABC publicist Aime Wolfe told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

Entertainment Weekly reported Wednesday on its Web site that Holmes was to appear in the show's second season this fall. That means the 29-year-old star will work again with show creator Greg Berlanti, who was a writer-producer for the teen drama "Dawson's Creek," which starred Holmes as tomboy Joey Potter.

Holmes - who'll likely decamp to New York with daughter Suri in tow - will make her Broadway debut Sept. 18 in a revival of Arthur Miller's "All My Sons."

The production, which also stars John Lithgow, Dianne Wiest and Patrick Wilson, officially opens Oct. 16 at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre for a limited engagement through Jan. 11.
