The NBC hit Smash just added one more American Idol alum to its all-star cast!
Announced today, Oscar, Golden Globe and Grammy-winning actress-singer Jennifer Hudson has just signed on for a recurring role on the musical drama alongside fellow Idol hopeful and series star, Katharine McPhee.
"This series is a showcase for some of the best musical talent in the business and that's a fitting description for Jennifer Hudson," said Greenblatt. "Her character will represent someone who reached their Broadway dream but also paid a price for it."
Hudson will play the role of Veronica Moore, "a Tony Award-winning Broadway star who impacts the lives of Karen (McPhee) and Ivy (Megan Hilty)."
