NBC confirms Nikki will appear on the show’s upcoming second season — but will she be playing herself?

Nikki Blonsky can hear the bells again — but this time, they’re chiming the NBC theme song! The Hairspray star is joining the second season of Smash, NBC confirms to HollywoodLife.com, though details of her role are being kept under wraps for now.

Wes Taylor, who plays Bobby on Smash, spilled the beans Sept. 17 when he tweeted the above photo of himself goofing around with Nikki on set.

Nikki is the latest addition to the star-studded second season, which already includes huge names like Jennifer HudsonSean Hayes and Jesse L. Martin.

What do you think of this casting, Smash fans? Do you hope to see Nikki stick around for multiple episodes? Drop me a comment with your thoughts and predictions. We’re still months away from season two!

I liked her in Hairspray, I just hope with all the stunt casting they seem to be doing that it doesn’ twreck the show. With the exception of Ellis , I loved season 1.

Very exciting! She was fabulous in Hairspray; I was sad to hear she had to go back to working retail in New Jersey. Good for her for getting back in the game!
