Hell hath no fury like two potential understudies scorned! Rebecca better watch her back.
Just when you thought Ellis (Jaime Cepero) was the worst thing to happen to Bombshell, along came Rebecca Duvall (Uma Thurman) on the April 16 episode of Smash to remind us all that, despite what Dan Savage claims, it doesn’t always get better. After butchering “Let Me Be Your Star,” Rebecca introduced a few creative changes to the show: In a nutshell, longer scenes and less singing — which is great for a musical.
Plus, the truth about Julia & Michael finally comes out!
“Hell on Earth” couldn’t have been a more appropriate title for the April 2 episode of Smash because, despite Karen (Katharine McPhee) scoring a national orange juice commercial, everyone else’s lives were turned completely upside down. Julia’s (Debra Messing) marriage crumbled, Ivy’s (Megan Hilty) addiction escalated, and Tom (Christian Borle) was faced with the most terrifying evil of all — a gay republican!
Did this week’s ‘Smash’ sway you from Team Ivy to Team Karen? And more importantly, does anyone NOT hate Ellis?
After weeks of watching Ivy (Megan Hilty) hog the spotlight, the March 26 episode of Smash gave us a taste of what Marilyn would look like with Karen (Katharine McPhee) in the title role — and the result was, simply put, a hot mess. While “Touch Me” was a fine production number, I personally wouldn’t touch the “new” Marilyn with a 50-foot pole.
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.]”
‘Let’s Be Bad’ wasn’t just the name of this week’s episode — it was also every character’s mantra!
“Taboo” doesn’t even begin to describe what went down on the March 5 episode of Smash, and the hour of musical debauchery led up to the biggest “oh no she didn’t” moment of all: Julia (Debra Messing) gave into temptation and kissed Michael (Will Chase)! Suddenly Leo almost getting arrested for smoking pot doesn’t seem so bad, now does it?
Plus, am I the only one hoping Ellis gets hit by a bus? Like, a really big one?
With Ivy (Megan Hilty) firmly in place as Marilyn Monroe, the Feb. 20 episode of Smash focused on Marilyn‘s creative team searching for the perfect leading man to play Joe DiMaggio. And because the drama is never relegated to the stage alone, the plum role went to Michael Swift (Will Chase), who may or may not have had an affair with Julia (Debra Messing) back in the day. Someone hand me a spoon, because this plot has officially thickened.
Do you think the plum part went to the right girl? I think I’m satisfied.
Well that didn’t take long. Only one week after Karen (Katharine McPhee) and Ivy (Megan Hilty) sang/begged for the lead in Marilyn: The Musical, a winner was crowned — uh, wigged — on the Feb. 13 episode of Smash. So which hopeful got to hear those three magical words: “You got Marilyn?”
Jaime tells HollywoodLife.com the biggest source of ‘tension’ this season on ‘Smash.’
Ellis may have come off plucky and naïve on the Feb. 6 premiere of Smash, but Jaime Cepero says we shouldn’t write off Tom’s (Christian Borle) new assistant just yet. “You will definitely see more of his cunning side,” Jaime told HollywoodLife.com during a recent visit to our NYC offices. “As the show goes on, you’ll see the lengths he’ll go to in order to be a part of the [Marilyn] production.”
I’m already shamelessly addicted to NBC’s new toe-tapper. Are you?
The series of premiere of NBC’s Smash introduced us to two very different girls with one very similar dream: Broadway vet Ivy (Megan Hilty) and theatrical newbie Karen (Katharine McPhee) both have their hearts set on playing Marilyn Monroe in a new musical, appropriately titled Marilyn. The stage, and season, is now set for an all-out brawl — but who will be left standing when the curtain finally rises?
