Winter TV Preview: Smash

Smash, NBC
Premieres Tuesday, February 5 at 9/8c

NBC’s Broadway-themed musical dramedy Smash proved to be one of our guilty pleasures last season, especially with Jaime Cepero as scheming personal assistant Ellis Boyd causing drama. And even though he won’t be back for season two, we’re excited to hear about the two Latinas who’ve joined the show. Real-life Broadway actress Krysta Rodriguez will portray Ana Vargas, Karen's (Katharine McPhee) new roommate who is looking for her big break in the Big Apple. Meanwhile, Tony-nominated actress Daphne Rubin-Vega will have a recurring role as a publicist on Smash.
