Another guest star has been added to Eli Stone's star-studded sophomore season.  Most recently, Shark's Danielle Panabaker has signed on to join the cast of the ABC surrealistic drama about an attorney who is discovered to have a brain aneurysm that causes hallucinations or, as Dr. Chen suggests, divinely inspired visions of the future.

Not much has been revealed about Panabaker's role on Eli Stone though Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello reports that her involvement on the show is quite big.  Fans will just have to stay tuned for more updates.

Aside from playing Julie Stark, lead star James Woods' on-screen daughter on Shark, Panabaker is also known for role in the psychological thriller Mr. Brooks as Jane Brooks, in Sky High as Layla Williams and in the Disney Channel original movies Stuck in the Suburbs and Read It and Weep, the latter of which she starred alongside her sister Kay Panabaker.

Following the cancellation of Shark, Panabaker was cast as Jenna, a main character of the much anticipated Friday the 13th remake along with Jared Padalecki of Supernatural fame.  Other movie projects in the future for the young starlet include Renaissance Girl, in which she'll co-star with Jennifer Tilly, the mystery horror Prodigy, and the comedy drama Weakness.

Panabaker's guest stint marks the latest casting scoop on Eli Stone. Sigourney Weaver, Oscar winner who is best known for her roles as Lt. Ellen Ripley in the Alien film series, already appeared as a therapist on the show's second season premiere, while Dawson's Creek's Katie Holmes guest starred in the second episode as mysterious woman whom Eli found himself attracted to. Moving further into the season, Bridget Moynahan, who portrayed Whitney Crane on Six Degrees, will be appearing as a love interest for the visionary title character, though her duration run on the sophomore drama is unclear yet at this point.  Also slated to appear on the show is Grammy Award-winner Seal who will be perform as Taylor Wethersby's (Natasha Henstridge) favorite singer.
