Former American Idol contestant Jennifer Hudson joins another Idol alum Katharine McPhee on the hit television musical drama show Smash this season.
The character she will be playing is described as, ” a Tony Award-winning Broadway star who impacts the lives of Karen and Ivy.”
NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt said, “This series is a showcase for some of the best musical talent in the business and that’s a fitting description for Jennifer Hudson, Her character will represent someone who reached their Broadway dream but also paid a price for it.”
