J.J. Abrams Finds a Female Lead for His CBS Pilot
3/3/11 at 9:35 PM

J.J. Abrams has found the female lead for his new CBS drama Person of Interest. Vulture can exclusively report that Taraji P. Henson, most recently seen in Tyler Perry movies I Can Do Bad All By Myself and The Family That Preys (and an Oscar nominee for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), has been cast as a female detective named Carter on the series, joining the previously confirmed Michael Emerson on the show. Person tells the story of an ex-CIA agent who is recruited by a crazy billionaire to help fight crime in New York City. We're assuming Henson's Carter will team up with the as-yet uncast ex-CIA agent. Henson's last regular TV gigs were on ABC's Eli Stone and Boston Legal; she first gained notice letting the world know It's Hard Out There For a Pimp in Hustle & Flow.
