Brian D’arcy James tells HollywoodLife.com that Frank won’t take Julia’s affair with Michael lying down. (Puns are fun!)

I hope Julia (Debra Messing) enjoyed that big kiss with Michael (Will Chase) on last week’s episode of Smash, because her affair is about to be revealed — and mild-mannered hubby Frank (Brian D’arcy James) might just release his inner Hulk. “That information comes out; it’s coming,” Brian told HollywoodLife.com on March 5 at the NYC premiere of Friends With Kids, hosted by the Cinema Society and People‘s Style Watch. “Viewers may even see some retribution that [Frank] takes upon [Julia.]”

But Brian said viewers shouldn’t be too quick to assume the affair will lead to a divorce.

“[There are] complexities to a situation like this,” Brian explained. “The writers have been very responsible in terms of not making it easy to wrap it up in a bow. Let’s just say it’s as messy and as complicated as the event itself, which I love!”

And for the sake of putting wacky theories out into the universe, we asked Brian if it’s possible Frank has been engaging in some extramarital fun of his own while he’s been away. (God only knows what goes down at those “teacher re-certification retreats.”)

“I don’t know,” he said. “I didn’t say that!”

Hmm… We’ll take that as a maybe.
