First Look at Jennifer Hudson in NBC’s ‘Smash’ (Video)

Posted on August 8, 2012 /TV


A new promo video offers a first look at Jennifer Hudson making her debut as a Broadway diva on the second season of NBC’s Smash. Hudson is featured prominently in a new super trailer highlighting some of the new and returning television shows airing on the network this fall.

The actress, who won an Oscar for her role in Dreamgirls, will play Veronica Moore, a Tony-winning Broadway star who impacts the lives of Karen (Katharine McPhee) and Ivy (Megan Hilty). Sitting in a makeup chair, Hudson looked fierce as she warned McPhee’s Karen: “Someone’s always waiting to take you down, honey.”

Hudson is currently filming The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete in New York City.
