For her three-episode arc on Eli Stone, Taraji P. Henson will portray Angela, a frustrated student, the TV Fanatic has learned.

“She used to take jazz and ballet, but her mom forced her to be a medical student,” Taraji revealed at an intimate gathering for her new Tyler Perry film, The Family That Preys, which opens tomorrow.

Mom is Eli Stone regular Loretta Devine. Needless to say, Angela’s got problems.

“I’m a little dysfunctional,” says Taraji. “You’ll see.”

The actress will also be getting all hot and bothered with Keith Bennett (played Jason George) during her run. Lucky girl!


While Taraji won’t get to sing on the series that often breaks out into song, she will get to dance.

Looks like those classes will pay off.

Eli Stone returns on Tuesday, Oct 14 at 10 p.m. on ABC.
