This week’s episode of Smash technically featured the first appearance by guest star Uma Thurman as Rebecca Duvall, the star brought in to headline the Marilyn musical. Of course, she existed mostly in name in the episode, and only actually showed her face at the very end. These photos from next Mondays episode give us a better look at Thurman in character as Rebecca Duvall, and Rebecca Duvall in character as Marilyn.
The Hollywood Reporter got the exclusive on the Marilyn photos, and I must admit, Thurman does make a pretty great looking Monroe. Check her out below (and view the rest of them here.)
Meanwhile, here are a few more photos from the episode, which give us a look at Duvall in the studio...
Will Duvall’s arrival bring Ivy and Karen together? From NBC’s episode description for “Movie Star,” that appears to be the case. But how long will it last?
“Bombshell” is turned upside-down by the arrival of movie star Rebecca Duvall (special guest star Uma Thurman). Karen (Katharine McPhee) and Ivy (Megan Hilty) are drawn into an uneasy alliance against their new rival -- but can they overcome their history? The romance between Tom (Christian Borle) and Sam (Leslie Odom, Jr.) heats up, while Julia (Debra Messing) and Frank (Brian D'Arcy James) must put aside their differences to address a family crisis. Dev (Raza Jaffrey) faces a big decision. Anjelica Huston and Jack Davenport also star.
Smash airs Mondays at 10:00 p.m. ET on NBC.
