jj abrams casts female lead for cbs pilot

Evangeline Lilly again! JK!

While we all miss Lost's Kate Austen terribly, she will NOT be starring in J.J. Abrams' new CBS pilot Person of Interest.

Abrams has cast The Curious Case of Benjamin Button Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson as Carter, a female detective.

The show is about "an ex-CIA agent who is recruited by a crazy billionaire to help fight crime in New York City."

And for those of you who are mad about the false Lost-related announcement, don't worry! Michael "Ben" Emerson is confirmed for the show as well.

Are U intrigued by J.J. Abrams' new CBS pilot?

    Why not sign up Trent Reznor too? He'll do anything for money. That's why the Goth-industrial elite have been loathing & despising him him since 2002. They consider him to be a sellout.

    all these CIA shows he's been creating lately… he must really miss Alias :(

    JJ. must really be the white version of Tyler Perry, he has def put a lot of black actors to work.

    Re: Chinwe Okorie Ŧ – Really??! You say that like its a bad thing. It's really sad that more directors and producers don't follow JJ's example. Taraji is a beautiful, talented, ACADEMY AWARD NOMINATED actress who will do a wonderful job with the right material.I can't wait to check her out. CONGRATS!!!
