In what’s been, to say the least, a season of ups and downs for “Smash,” the NBC comedy-drama about the making of a Broadway musical, there’s a plot twist in Monday’s episode that no one saw coming: Anjelica Huston will finally sing.
Anjelica Huston appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (February 20th) and reminisced about her days as a model in NYC and talked about her new show “Smash.”
Jace Lacob of TheDailyBeast.com talks with Anjelica Huston about her husband’s death, her formidable character, and the “cult of murder” on television today.
In this case, the room was the bar at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena, California, a few hours before Huston was set to take the stage before a ballroom of television critics at the TCA Winter Press Tour to answer questions for her new show, the Broadway-set drama Smash, which premieres Monday on NBC.
With her raven Cleopatra cut, an armful of gently clanging bracelets, and her impressive height, Huston is unlikely to get lost in a crowd, but her considerable talents as an actress render that an impossibility. As she slinked into a club chair on a gray January morning, she exuded a sense of serenity and warmth that is deeply at odds with the troubled characters she often plays.
“Were you one of those kids I scared to death?” she asked, when the topic of The Witches arose; Huston starred in the 1990 adaption of Roald Dahl’s novel as The Grand High Witch, Miss Eva Ernst, and terrified a generation of young moviegoers when she removed her face to reveal a grotesque monster beneath the placid façade.
Katharine McPhee, Angelica Houston, Debra Messing and Uma Thurman attended the Smash premiere at Manhattan’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. Below are some of the great shots taken of the cast:
