FOX's "Fringe" producers have cast singer-actress-poet Jill Scott in the role of Simone, described as “an incredibly intuitive woman, an oracle-like person.”

ET reports that Olivia (Anna Torv) will seek Simone’s assistance during an early season episode.

The Grammy-winning singer is also starring in Lifetime’s remake of Steel Magnolias with Queen Latifah, Phylicia Rashad and Alfre Woodard on Oct. 7.

Scott is shooting the Fox Searchlight romantic comedy Baggage Claim starring Paula Patton and she’s been cast in Woody Allen’s next film.

Her previous credits include HBO's The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency and Why Did I Get Married?
