We're late on reporting this, but better late than never.

Jill Scott will guest-star in an upcoming episode of Fringe, playing a character named Simone, who is described as "an incredibly intuitive woman, an oracle-like person," who will help Olivia (Anna Torv) in an early Season 5 episode.

Ms Scott's on somewhat of a roll in terms of her acting career; in addition to co-starring in Lifetime’s recent hit remake of Steel Magnolias, she’s also currently shooting the Fox Searchlight's romcom Baggage Claim, with Paula Patton, and, both The Hollywood Reporter and Entertainment Weekly say that she’s been cast in Woody Allen’s next film.

Although neither specify what film that is, and what role she'll be playing in it. Research informed me that Fading Gigolo is Woody Allen's next film, which stars, Allen, John TurturroSofía Vergara and Sharon Stone, in a story about a man (played by Turturro) who decides to become a professional Don Juan as a way of making money to help his cash-strapped friend, Murray (played by Allen).

When we know more about Jill's involvement, we'll share here.

Fringe airs Fridays at 9/8c on Fox.
