Smash is back in the news-ies.
Rising Broadway heartthrob Jeremy Jordan, who earned a 2012 Tony nod for his starring role in Newsies, is joining the second season of NBC’s musical drama as a series regular, TVLine has learned.
Jordan will play a very sexy (and straight) Brooklyn-born singer with a self-destructive streak.
His character is one of three roles being added under new showrunner Josh Safran. The other newbies, a gay male Broadway dreamer and an African-American female chorus member, have yet to be cast.
