Taraji P. Henson Lands New Role

Actress Taraji P. Henson has landed another high profile role. The 40 year old Oscar nominee, probably best known for her role in John Singleton’s 2001 film “Baby Boy,” has been cast by JJ Abrams to play the role of a police detective in his new CBS drama “Person of Interest.” Taraji will play opposite Michael Emerson, whose character is an eccentric billionaire who hires Taraji to help fight crime in New York City. The show’s male lead has not been cast yet, but word is he may be African American too.


  1. I really love Taraji and I’m so excited for her and this new role! I love JJ Abrams’ work, too. I will definitely be checking for this series. 🙂

  2. This chick is a bomb actress. It’s about time the good ones are getting notice. Now put my twin sister Sanaa in some.

  3. Maybe the show will have a chance since it’ll be on CBS. I’ll most certainly watch cause Taraji is good and JJ usually puts together good shows, Fringe is my fav right now 🙂

  4. Taraji was adorable in The Karate Kid. She’s a natural actress. Her character luvin all things China, was funny. She reminded me of my aunt with the traditional clothes.

    I can’t wait to see her in this new show. she was good on Boston Legal.

  5. I love this, I love my boy friend. He is a nice guy. i met him via

  6. I love Tarji! We need to see more of her on the small screen and the big screen!

  7. Great actress and J.J. Abrams is obviously attempting to provide opportunities to African Americans in Hollywood (ie…Undercovers series). I hope we support the show and his efforts..
