MUSIC ICON GEORGE MICHAEL RETAINS
ELI'S LEGAL COUNSEL, ON ABC'S "ELI STONE"
"I Want Your Sex" � When a teenaged girl is expelled for playing George Michael's "I Want Your Sex" during an abstinence education assembly at school, the pop superstar (playing himself) retains Eli's legal counsel on the girl's behalf, THURSDAY, MARCH 27 (10:02-11:00 p.m., ET), on ABC's "Eli Stone." Jordan coyly assigns himself to the case alongside Eli, failing miserably to hide his obsessive adoration for the singer. A vision motivates Eli to go on his first date since his engagement broke off... with Beth Keller, the girl to whom he lost his virginity and who harbors a shocking secret about Eli's brother, Nathan. Meanwhile, Taylor and Matt get a little closer when they're assigned to work together on a case representing a judge ailing from cancer suing the man who refuses to donate his bone marrow -- the judge's estranged son.
