Jennifer Hudson to Guest Star on ‘Smash’
Hudson will play Tony Award-winning Broadway star Veronica Moore in a multi-episode arc, appearing in the premiere of season two.
The Oscar winner will act alongside fellow former American Idol contestant Katherine McPhee as well as Megan Hilty.
“We’re thrilled to have Jennifer Hudson coming to Smash,” said NBC entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt in a statement. “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.”
Hudson has stayed relatively inactive since her former brother-in-law was convicted of murdering her family in 2008. Her last major acting role was the 2006 film Dreamgirls, in which she played Effie White.
