Two-time Tony winner Christine Ebersole and Cheyenne Jackson will pop up on an upcoming episode of Smash, according to a post made by the actress on composer Marc Shaiman’s Facebook.
“I am writing to you from the set of Smash! I am playing a character named ‘Christine Ebersole’…,” the actress wrote on February 26, adding that she was “announcing the Tony nominations with Cheyenne Jackson.”
Wait a hot second—does this mean we’ll actually get to see the Tony Awards on Smash this year, as Krysta Rodriguez teased to us in January? Let’s hope so! Bombshell versus Hit List versus Liaisons versus Beautiful... it's our poll all over again!
Ebersole and Jackson are among the slew of Broadway stars who will appear on this season of the NBC musical dramedy, alongside folks like Lin-Manuel Miranda, Montego Glover, Carolee Carmello, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Jesse L. Martin, Liza Minnelli, Bernadette Peters, Rosie O'Donnell, Sheryl Lee Ralph, John Robin Baitz, Kathy Fitzgerald, Julian Ovenden, Jason Kravitz, Manny Herrera, Veanne Cox… shall we continue? Or will you just tune in already and see for yourself!?
