Co-Star: Katie Holmes' Dancing Is "Pretty Hot!" on Eli Stone

Us Weekly

The cast of ABC's Eli Stone can't stop gushing about Katie Holmes' upcoming song-and-dance number on the Oct. 21 episode.

"She can sing and dance," Natasha Henstridge told Usmagazine.com at Saturday's fifth annual Runway For Life gala in Beverly Hills. "She did a fantastic job."

Holmes - who plays a non-profit attorney with a mysterious case - belts out "Hit Me with a Hard Note" for a dream sequence involving Eli (Jonny Lee Miller).

Although "she got an amazing choreographer," Henstridge said she didn't need one.

"She's a very talented girl," she told Us. "I've only seen the clips like you have, but it's pretty hot!"

Added Miller, "She was absolutely fantastic to work with. She was so professional and so well-prepared.

"She has a song and dance as well, and she is fantastic," he added. "As well as being a terrific actress, she is also a lovely, lovely human being, and it was really, really great having her and the family around."

Holmes has another big event coming up: Her Broadway revival of Arthur Miller's All My Sons officially opens Thursday.
