The NBC musical drama series "Smash" has cast a new love interest for Debra Messing, whose character wrecked her marriage with an affair during the show’s first season, reports EW.com’s Inside TV.
Actor Daniel Sunjata will join the show’s second season in a recurring role as Messing’s love interest. He was a regular in FX’s "Rescue Me," and also had a story arc in ABC’s "Grey’s Anatomy" last year. On the big screen, he’s seen in “Dark Knight Rises.”
The show will return to NBC at midseason.
The report adds: “In other ‘Smash’ news, Karen is getting a new roommate for season two played by Krysta Rodriguez, and, of course, Jennifer Hudson is joining the cast as a Broadway star.”
