An actress known for her film roles — including an Oscar-nominated turn in the landmark 1994 movie “Pulp Fiction” — is reportedly set to take on a major arc on TV for the first time.
Uma Thurman will appear as a guest star on NBC’s midseason show "Smash," reports Deadline.com.
Thurman will play a difficult movie actress who considers starring in the Broadway musical that’s the center of the TV show, the story says. "Smash" follows the creation and staging of "Marilyn," a fictional Broadway show based on the life of screen siren Marilyn Monroe.
Thurman has done almost no television, although she won a Golden Globe for her performance in the 2002 HBO movie “Hysterical Blindness.” Besides Quentin Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction,” she is known for her featured role in the director’s “Kill Bill” series.
"Smash" will debut Feb. 6.
