Uma Thurman Cast in NBC's Musical Drama <i>Smash</i>

Smash, NBC’s musical drama answer to Glee, hasn’t even premiered yet and major casting news is already building anticipation. Not only does the show star Debra Messing, Katharine McPhee and Anjelica Huston, but Entertainment Weekly has reported Uma Thurman will have a multi-episode arc in the debut season.

The show is based around a group of New York musicians and actors who band together to create a Broadway musical based on Marilyn Monroe’s life. Thurman will play “a famous and somewhat difficult movie star who flirts with the idea of starring in” the musical for five episodes.

Smash premieres Feb. 6, 2012 on NBC.
