Star Jones’ First Guest: Isaiah Washington

0816starjones.jpgStar Jones‘ upcoming Court TV show is kicking off with a bang: She’s interviewing Isaiah Washington. According to Entertainment Weekly, who broke the story, Washington will be the guest on Jones’ first episode. Expect lots of handwringing and apologies over the T.R. Knight incident (and plugs for his remake of The Bionic Woman):

“How does this all relate to Jones’ law-themed show? ”[Washington is] clearly in the middle of a story that involves law and ethics and values and judgment,” Jones said. ”But also, he has a brand-new show that brings up ethical considerations. We’re excited about The Bionic Woman, but there are ethical considerations [there] because we in our technology right now are moving to replacing limbs, and we’re moving in the whole area of stem cell research, we’re moving in the area of cloning and whether or not it can actually be done with a human.”

…Interesting. Also, there’s a great, amazingly frosty interview with Jones in this week’s Time Out New York too.
