What we're coming to like about 'Smash' more and more is how it appropriately casts actors with ties to the New York theatre scene, rather than simply picking pretty faces out of Hollywood.  Sure' we've got Jennifer Hudson on deck to play a large role in 'Smash' season 2, but who's the latest true Broadway star to land a role in NBC's hotly-debated musical hit?

The first season of NBC's buzz-worthy hit 'Smash' may have come and gone, leaving most rather miffed about the possibility of a second season, though with new show-runner Josh Safran ('Gossip Girl') in place, "Bombshell" might just be ripe for the shakeup we all need.  And what better way to shake things up by bringing in one one, but three new cast members?
