The Lone Star and River alum, who will next appear in the 50 Shades of Grey movie adaptation, will play Stacey, a surgical resident who has a crush on her boss. She's sometimes overwhelmed by the sadness and emotional toll of her job, but admires how her boss handles it.

"Eloise is really special. She is perfect for this role and our first choice.  I couldn't be happier or feel luckier that we have the chance to make Warriors together," said executive producer Chris Keyser.

Stephen Baigelman will write the project from Party of Five's Keyser.
