This year NBC’s Smash will have a bit of a Will & Grace reunion with Sean Hayes joining Debra Messing on the show about making a hit Broadway musical. The Emmy winner, will play Terrence Falls, a comedy TV and movie star who’s making his Broadway debut in the musical Liaisons, based on the novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses. As a result of a series of comic circumstances, his character becomes a major thorn in the side for Ivy Lynn (Megan Hilty) and other characters working on Marilyn the Musical. Hayes will be performing triple duty for NBC this year along with appearing on Smash he is set to appear in a multi-episode arc on the upcoming 2nd season of NBC’s comedy Up All Night as Ava’s (Maya Rudolph) former accompanist as well as he is executive producer for the NBC drama Grimm.
I really can’t wait to see this and I hope they find a way to work in Eric McCormack this season as well. Smash returns in January of 2013 but if you’re looking for something to watch on NBC with ties to Sean Hayes NBC’s Grimm premieres tonight.
