By now you may have viewed some of the preview clips of Katie Holmes's upcoming cameo on Eli Stone (if you haven't, click here), which starts with this week's episode, Tuesday night. Many folks are curious about how she'll do on the show since we haven't seen much of Katie in terms of actual movie or TV roles, but at the same time, we've seen a lot of Katie as an oft-paparazzied celebrity. Do you think Katie's fame will distract from her performance on Eli Stone? Can you see her as anyone but Katie Holmes?
Jennifer Aniston will appear soon on 30 Rock which will be intriguing, but again, is it possible to watch her in a TV cameo without thinking this is Jennifer Aniston? One time when I thought it worked out well was Brad Pitt's appearance on Friends, though I don't know what the difference was there.
My favorite thing is when well-known personalities play themselves in a TV show, as Oprah is going to do on 30 Rock. What do you think of TV cameos by big-name celebrities? Yea or nay?
