    Hmm – not seeing her as a socialite. She’s cute, not sophisticated or elegant. I’d rather see her in a light rom-com type show.

    it will probably flop like everything else she does.

    I think she reminds me of Jennifer Aniston in that everybody knows she is not beautiful but because the media said she was you are suppose to repeat the party line. She is just so average at best.

    Maybe she is realizing she isn’t cut out for movies and doesn’t have the chops so is trying to do tv again.
    I guess we will see how many seasons it last.

    YES omg I just finished re watching dawsons creek and she is so great to watch. Really glad she is getting back into it she is so talented and lights up the tv screen. I can definitely see her as a socialite, specially cuz she can now wear heels and act freely since she’s not tied down to the crazy midget anymore. She will be beautiful, just like Audrey Hepburn as described. Can’t wait!!!!!!

    Josie that is stupid. She wore heels when she was married to Tom.
    She isn’t Joey Potter anymore and her recent acting attempts have not received great reviews both when she was married and after. I have a feeling this one will go the same way.

    I wonder what the ratio is of Pilots that actually make it to the line up. I know so many really talented people who do pilot after pilot and they never take off.
    The Pilot stage is not the final step. You still have to be well received for the show to actually get air time and then make it past the first season.
    Is this suppose to be a comedy? Does she have comedic skills? Or will she just smirk at us for 22 minutes?

    Loren Says:

    Ok so a google search can answer my own question. I don’t know how accurate this is but this is what the first link that came up from WiseGeek said

    “It’s estimated that about 2/3 of pilot television shows developed in America never even make it to air. The major networks usually order about 20 pilots per season, and of those, around 6 are chosen to be premiere episodes. Of every fifty scripts commissioned, around ten or fewer are selected to be produced as pilots.”

    I live in Brazil and, at least here, she’s more famous for being Tom Cruise’s ex and Suri’s mother than for being an actress.

    I think getting back into TV is the right move for Katie. Maybe it will be filmed in NY so she won’t have to re-locate.

    @carolyn Says:

    I read the original source and it will be set in NY, however, it is premature to assume this will go to series and she has to worry about where to live. If it does good for her since it’s probably her best option and secure income but she still has an uphill battle to get it to series. Anyone remember 1600 Penn from last year? Many people tried to make that show happen, even the President since he knew the writer, but in the end it didn’t make it. It was painfully bad show though so who knows how the writing on this one will be.

    Comparing her to Audrey Hepburn is an insult! There is nothing in her career or looks that could be considered even close to Audrey Hepburn.

    THERE IS A PHOTO OF TOM, KATIE AND SURI, playing on a carousel.

    Polythene Pam Says:

    It’s as insulting as when they were trying to make her out to be like Jackie O living in NYC. Her supporters and PR Team are beyond delusional. If this show is a failure too will she get the hint or keep on pugging away?

    @Ivan: they’re comparing her character not her

    tick Says:

    Worst actress ever. Her career is a joke compared to Michelle Williams. Without Tom, Katie is nothing and she knows it. That’s why she married him in spite of his flaws. She wanted to boost her career.

    Ivan Says:

    I don’t understand. If they are comparing some character, why don’t they simply mention the title of the movie from where they are getting this character? Or, they mean she will play a woman that look and act like Audrey Hepburn? What is the connection with Audrey Hepburn in the first place?

    Nadine Says:

    Ivan they are saying the character she plays is suppose to be someone who is like Audrey. So in a way your point was valid because they are picking KH to play someone who is suppose to be like Audrey. They didn’t say KH was like AH but her character is so it’s kind of the same. KH will not come across like AH in anyway so it’s very strange that they chose her for this. Basically AH was upper class and sophisticated and KH is nothing like that and comes across very low brow. I would love to see her try and play a socialite. I am flabbergasted that someone thinks she can play someone who is compared to AH.

    Katie is a wonderful actress she will do great in this part. I will definitely be watching.

    Oh and I think Katie Holmes is even more beautiful than Audrey Hepburn was.

    I think I’m understanding the story line, I think.
    Are we talking male and female or two females here….

    Cari Says:

    I do think TV is best for her limited set of acting chops, but not sure she can pull this off as described. She is NO Audrey Hepburn in looks, fashion sense or acting skills.

    Dare To Be Honest Says:

    Perfect role. She’s got the eyes and hallow cheeks for it. Hope it makes it! In Daily Mail, she plays a shallow person. I never saw Audrey Hepbern as anything other than sweet and sincere!
