Katie Holmes almost took the lead role in Orange is the New Black.
The former Dawson's Creek star was approached by creator Jenji Kohan to play Piper Chapman - the bisexual drug-smuggling prisoner played by Taylor Schilling - in the Netflix drama but turned it down because she had other commitments.
"I'm a big fan of hers. You know, I met with her. [Katie] had other things to do. And also in the beginning, no one knew what this was," Jenji told E! Online.
While she initially turned down the program, the cast of the drama would love Katie to make a guest appearance on the show. When asked who Katie could play, Taylor said, "[Katie] could be friends with Lorna or like Lorna's Boston sister."
And Kate Mulgrew - who plays Red - joked the brunette beauty would have to be careful if she did end up behind bars at Litchfield Prison: "She better watch herself. Pretty girls have to watch out in prison."
Katie Holmes is in talks to launch her own reality show.
The Don't Be Afraid of the Dark star has reportedly been plotting to reinvent herself as America's next domestic goddess in the vein of fellow actress Gwyneth Paltrow and is considering showing her life on the small screen.
"Katie admires how Gwyneth Paltrow has carved out a foodie career. She's hoping this might be a great new direction for her. A number of prominent cable networks are interested in the show, which will see Katie learning to make different dishes, as well as concentrating on catering for children," a source said.
The report comes after Katie, 35, posted pictures of herself with her designer pal Zac Posen learning how to make fresh pasta at Mario Batali's New York cookery school, Eataly. It is thought Katie was getting advice from the top chef about her new show, especially since she only started to experiment in the kitchen two years ago.
Katie Holmes would consider a Dawson's Creek reunion.
The 33-year-old actress thinks it would be fun to get back together with the cast of the hit teen drama - James Van Der Beek, Michelle Williams and Joshua Jackson - to film a brand new series where the gang go on holiday together.
"I love everyone from the show and we have kind of talked about it here and there, but what do you do? Michelle's character passed away... Our last episode, we were already five years older. Maybe we'll go on vacation, that will be fun--and just film it!" she said when speaking on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
The popular show ran from 1998 until 2003 and afforded Katie her break-out role. The brunette beauty is currently making a return to acting and juggling rehearsals for Broadway play Dead Accounts with looking after six-year-old daughter Suri. Discussing her new project, where she plays an Ohio woman who still lives with her parents whose brother comes home after "doing something really wrong," she said, "It's a comedy, but there's a lot of heavy themes."
Michelle Williams would be ''totally'' up for a Dawson's Creek reunion.
The Oscar-nominated actress claims she would love to reprise her role as Jen Lindley in the teen drama which ran from 1998-2003, and believes lead star James Van Der Beek should call her up to ask her.
"[James] has my email. He has my phone, and my cell phone, so we talk. He could totally ask! I've always said I'm totally up for reunion tours, reunion shows, so we can do that!" she said.
Michelle - who has six-year-old daughter Matilda - is not the only star of the show who has expressed an interest in returning to the series; Katie Holmes, who played Joey Potter in the drama, admits she would enjoy the opportunity to bring Dawson's Creek back: "It would be fun. I had so much fun working on that show and I loved everyone so much and I think about it with such fond memories."
James has previously said he has grown to appreciate his role as Dawson Leery as he has gotten older: "The older get, the easier it is to appreciate how lucky I was to have that experience."
… but, the History Channel still isn’t going to touch it.
The much-talked-about Kennedys miniseries, which was created by the History Channel and (allegedly) pulled off TV by the Kennedy family, will make it to US households after all. Mmm … some of them, anyway.
No major networks were bold enough to accept the series, but the cable ReelzChannel will begin showing The Kennedys starting on April 3rd.
If you’ve never heard of that channel, you aren’t alone. The website has a helpful locator so you can find out how to get it ... and then, you’ll finally have the chance to see Katie Holmes as Jackie Kennedy. Honestly, it’s hard to hold a grudge against the Kennedy clan for trying to put a stop to that.

It appears the actual Kennedys
are the ones to thank played a role in the cancellation of The Kennedys – a miniseries once destined for the History Channel.
The eight-hour event, featuring Greg Kinnear as President John F. Kennedy, was to have focused on focus on the personal relationships within the famous family. And though Katie Holmes “worked as hard” as she could to portray former First Lady Jackie Kennedy, the project was scrapped from the channel’s schedule.

UPDATE: Holmes’ rep says the rumor is not true. (Thank goodness.)
Even if Julia Roberts doesn’t make a guest appearance on Glee, there’s a very good chance another Oscar winner will.
According to Entertainment Weekly, one of Julia’s co-stars is reportedly scheduled to visit the FOX series next season. Javier Bardem, who also worked with creator Ryan Murphy when he directed Eat Pray Love, reportedly pitched the idea of a cameo.
So what will the No Country for Old Men star do on the comedy? “We’re going to rock the house,” Javier said about playing a rock star who becomes friends with the New Directions’ Artie (Kevin McHale). “We’re going to do some heavy metal — Spanish heavy metal, which is the worst.” (In the event you’re wondering about Bardem’s singing abilities, he was original supposedly to star in the film adaptation of Nine.)
Meanwhile, it’s being rumored that Katie Holmes has snagged a five-episode arc on the series as well. Holmes reportedly developed a relationship with Murphy after working with Dianna Agron on the upcoming film The Romantics.
