NBC’s ‘Smash’ is searching for an ‘incredibly attractive’ black series regular for Season 2
There will be some changes in the upcoming new season of NBC’s musical drama Smash. The showrunners are looking to add some new characters on the show, and one of them will definitely be black.
The musical drama is in the process of casting for a total of three new regular roles to join the lineup of the faux Bombshell cast, reports TVLine. With Josh Safran now on board as showrunner following the unexpected exit of Theresa Rebeck, there’s plenty of speculation as to what change the series will see for next season.
Smash is seeking to cast the roles of Courtney, an African-American chorus girl in her mid-to-late 20s. She packs a powerhouse voice and is described as “incredibly attractive and confident, but also open-minded and non-judgmental.” They’re also looking to cast Danny, a working-class mid-20s straight guy from Brooklyn. Danny is “sexy, charismatic and musically gifted, but also self-destructive and remote.” And lastly, producers are looking to cast Joe, an early-to-mid 20s friendly gay guy from Brooklyn. He is described as “gay, very cute, incredibly open and optimistic.”
