Jennifer Hudson To Guest Star In Smash For Season 2 image

For many contestants on American Idol, the Fox singing
competition is the pinnacle of their singing career and the most
exposure they'll probably get as musicians. For a smaller percentage,
the series is just the start of a much bigger career filled with
accomplishments. Jennifer Hudson is among the latter camp, as evidenced
by her Academy Award. The singer/actor/Weight Watchers spokesperson's
star only continues to rise, and now it looks like NBC's Smash will benefit from her talents.

NBC's musical drama Smash is already set for some notable changes, with a new show runner, some character exits and character additions. And apparently, at least one amazing guest appearance. TV Line
shared the news tonight that Hudson is set to join the Broadway-focused
series for Season 2 in a multi-episode arc. According to the site,
she'll play Veronica, "a Tony-winning Broadway star who impacts the
lives of Karen (Katharine McPhee) and Ivy (Megan Hilty)."

That's an interesting description and one that's just vague enough to
leave plenty of room for speculation. Will she be some form of
competition to Karen and Ivy? Or is she going to come into the show in
some sort of mentor-type role. With a Tony under her belt and Jennifer
Hudson's pipes, Veronica sounds like someone Karen and Ivy might strive
to be like. Or they'll be threatened by her. Again, we can only guess.
What's certain is that this is great news for Smash. Hopefully they give her something great to sing.

    Good casting
    Well, she has an Oscar and is starring with Whitney Houston in her last movie so we know she can sing and act. So where's the downside ? Hopefully they will tone down some of the extreme soap opera type stuff they did in the first season.
