Taraji P. Henson lands lead in J.J. Abrams’ CBS pilot

Go chase that paper girl.Oscar-nominated actress Taraji P. Henson (“The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”) is headed to the small screen as the female lead in “Lost” creator J.J. Abrams’ CBS pilot, “Person of Interest.”

New York magazine’s Vulture blog reports that the show centers around “an ex-CIA agent who is recruited by a crazy billionaire to help fight crime in New York City,” and Henson is slated to play a detective on the show.

Interestingly, she’s played both sides of the law on film: as a cop in last year’s “Date Night” and a prostitute in the 2005 Oscar-nominated “Hustle & Flow.”
