Jennifer Hudson has a busy year ahead of her, with the launch of her clothing line and now a guest appearance on NBC’s Smash.
This will mark Hudson’s first foray into television, aside from American Idol. She will star as Veronica Moore, a Tony winning stage actress, and will appear in the season premier.
NBC Entertainment head Robert Greenblatt said this about Moore in a statement:
“Her character will represent someone who reached their Broadway dream but also paid a price for it.”
Hudson will be acting beside stars: Anjelica Huston, Megan Hilty, Katharine McPhee and Debra Messing.
