Much in the way that the musical being developed in Smash is looking for a bit of star-power to get it some attention, the NBC series itself doesnít seem to be above bringing in a big name. Of course, Smash is only bringing Uma Thurman on as a guest star, and not to replace one of is leads, which is whatís happening with Ivy as Thermanís Rebecca Duvall steps in to take over the role of Marilyn.
The clip we have to show you from tonightís episode (ďUnderstudyĒ) doesnít give a huge amount away in terms of the dialogue. In fact, very little is said in actual words. But a lot is said in facial expressions and body language as Thurmanís character Duvall makes an deliciously dramatic (and occasionally slow-walking) entrance into the studio.
In addition to the dramatic, sunglasses-removing entrance by Thurmanís Rebecca, everything from the way Ivy steps out of her way, to the nervous expression on Karenís face, to Derekís less than enthusiastic expression suggests that thereís more than one person not thrilled by Ms. Duvallís arrival. Of course, Eileen seems over the moon by it. Itíll be interesting to see how Thurmanís character does in her newly acquired role, and how her presence affects the production.
Smash airs Mondays at 10:00 p.m. ET on NBC.
