Spoiler alert! A shocking on-set photo reveals a potential twist for Karen & Ivy.
Karen (Katharine McPhee) may have nabbed the lead role in Bombshell‘s out-of-town tryouts, but when the musical finally comes to Broadway, there could be a very different face donning that awful Marilyn Monroe wig. Smash is currently filming its second season. Scroll down to see the photo, and prepare to have your mind blown:
Not only is Ivy (Megan Hilty) credited as the show’s star, but Tom (Christian Borle) has been promoted to director! Meanwhile, Derek (Jack Davenport) appears to have been downgraded to the show’s choreographer. If Tom really does become the new director of Bombshell, it would certainly make sense for him to replace Karen with Ivy, since he was always a fan of the buxom blonde. What do YOU think about this poster? Are you glad Ivy is finally getting the role she was born to play, or do you suspect this is merely part of a dream sequence?
Liza Minnelli will guest-star as herself in the upcoming season of Smash. As part of the appearance, Minnelli will sing an original song with series regular Christian Borle written by composer-lyricists and executive producers Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman. Her episode, “The Surprise Party,” will air mid-season this spring. “Liza Minnelli is the essence of a multi-talented, singular show business sensation, particularly for her extraordinary contributions to Broadway,” NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt said. “So what could be more fitting than to have her legendary talent on a show that celebrates a world Liza has dazzled for decades? I had the pleasure of working with Liza when we restored her landmark television special ‘Liza With a Z’ at Showtime, and to see her artistry up close and personal is a thing to behold.” Smash returns Feb. 5. The second season will also feature previously announced guest stars Jennifer Hudson, Jesse L. Martin, Sean Hayes, and Bernadette Peters.
