Uma Thurman Is Difficult Movie Star on 'Smash'


Uma Thurman
The 'Pulp Fiction' actress signs up to guest star in five episodes of the upcoming NBC musical series.


"Smash" has snatched a Hollywood big-screen vet for a guest-starring role. Through a press release, it is announced that Uma Thurman has been booked for a five-episode arc on the new musical drama series.

Thurman's character is described as "a famous and somewhat difficult movie star who flirts with the idea of starring in 'Marilyn', the musical within the musical." It is unknown if she will sing on the Steven Spielberg-executive produced show.

Best known for her roles in "Pulp Fiction" and "Kill Bill", Thurman was previously seen gracing the small screen through 2002's TV movie "Hysterical Blindness". As for her next feature film projects, she stars opposite Robert Pattinson in "Bel Ami" and is also set to join the cast of "Eloise in Paris".

"Smash" revolves around a cross section of characters who come together to mount a Broadway musical inspired by silver screen icon Marilyn Monroe. Supported by Katharine McPhee, Jack Davenport, Debra Messing and Megan Hilty as the regular cast members, this new series will premiere Monday, February 6, 2012 at 10 P.M. ET on NBC.
