Not sure what to make of this - the best casting move of the year! or the most puzzling casting move of the year! - but doggone it, I like it: Uma Thurman is joining "Smash." (The show bows Feb. 6.)
Of course, this isn't a fulltime gig. As they say politely in the trade, it's "recurring." But still...what the heck. Few details via NBC other than to say that it'll be spread over five episodes. That number "five" is interesting too because it says this show that already boasts a legendary actress - Angelica Huston - has some guaranteed legs.
Here's the graph from the press release:
Golden Globe winner and Oscar nominee Uma Thurman will have a five-episode guest-starring arc on NBC’s new musical drama “Smash” as a famous and somewhat difficult movie star who flirts with the idea of starring in “Marilyn,” the musical within the musical.
