Jeremy Jordan on His 'Smash'ing Debut

By
If Let Me Be Your Star was the underlying theme of Smash's first season, there's no question that Broadway Here I Come is the message for season two, as almost every character is striving to claim their spot on The Great White Way.
And that amazing season one song got an equally chill-inducing counterpart in the season two premiere when Jeremy Jordan blew Karen -- and the audience -- away with the original composition.
But before a single frame of season two had aired (so please forgive some of the less insightful questions), I caught up with Jordan on the set of Smash to talk about his character, what Jimmy brings to the table and why his self-destructive streak isn't to blame for this busted lip!
Smash airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on NBC.
