Sneak Peek: Jennifer Hudson Gives Advice to Katharine McPhee on 'Smash'


'Someone's always waiting to take you down, honey,' the 'Spotlight' singer says in a new preview for NBC's primetime line-up.

The first look at Jennifer Hudson on "Smash" has been shared in a new preview for NBC's primetime line-up. Debuted during the Olympics on Tuesday night, August 7, the video offers a glimpse at the "American Idol" alumna in character as Veronica Moore, who tells Katharine McPhee's Karen, "Someone's always waiting to take you down, honey."

J-Hud's recurring character is described as a Tony Award-winning Broadway star who impacts the lives of Karen and Ivy (Megan Hilty). "Her character will represent someone who reached their Broadway dream but also paid a price for it," NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt said when announcing her casting.

The Effie White of "Dreamgirls" will first appear in the premiere episode of season 2, which is slated to air in midseason.

In related news, "Smash" has just added another cast member, Daniel Sunjata, to play a new love interest for Debra Messing's Julia. The former "Rescue Me" actor, who recently appeared in summer blockbuster movie "The Dark Knight Rises" as Captain Jones, joins Jeremy Jordan in addition to Hudson as guest stars in season 2.
