It looks like NBC's Smash just snagged their very own Dreamgirl!
TVLine reports that Oscar and Grammy winning superstar, Jennifer Hudson has signed on for a multiple episode arc in season two!
More after the jump!
According to TVLine, "She’ll play Veronica, a Tony-winning Broadway star who impacts the lives of Karen (Katharine McPhee) and Ivy (Megan Hilty)."
We're PRAYING for a diva throwdown between Veronica and Ivy (but with belting because they're classy Broadway broads)!
NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt says, “We’re thrilled to have Jennifer Hudson coming to Smash. 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.”
Steven Spielberg, Smash's executive producer, says: “I have no doubt Jennifer will continue to deliver even more inspiration to the audience responsible for giving us a second season on NBC.”
Look for J-Hud on the season two premiere of Smash, scheduled for early 2013!
Are you excited, Instincters? Will Jennifer Hudson add an Emmy to her crowded trophy case?
