Will the madness of 'Smash' season 2 never end?  The hit NBC series won't debut its re-vamped second season until sometime in mid-season, yet the casting news seems to come at no end.  Late last week we learned that Broadway vet and 'Law & Order' alum Jesse L. Martin would take a recurring role in the upcoming season, and now it seems 'Smash' has spritzed up another musical theatre star in 'Hairspray's Nikki Blonsky, but why is the role being kept so under wraps?
