Christina Ricci Moves From Big Screen To Small Screen

“Speed Racer” star Christina Ricci is moving from the big screen to the small screen. The actress has signed to guest-star on TNT’s provocative drama “Saving Grace” for a three-episode arc.

The show also stars Oscar winner Holly Hunter, as Grace Hanadarko, an intense Oklahoma City police detective whose wild personal life translates into a no-holds-barred approach to her detective work.

Ricci will play a young detective who temporarily partners with Grace, whose current partner, Ham Dewey (Kenneth Johnson), is going on a leave of absence.

This isn’t the first time Ricci has been on TV. Ricci’s television credits include a recurring role in "Ally McBeal" and a guest appearance on "Grey’s Anatomy," the latter earning her an Emmy nomination. Maybe her appearance will earn her another Emmy nomination?

In the meantime, check out Saving Grace which currently airs Mondays at 10 p.m. (ET/PT) on TNT.
