For those of you how have been watching NBC”s Smash and following the casting news for season two, you know that four members of the cast will be leaving early on in the new season. Two of those cast members are Brian d’Arcy James (who played Debra’s husband Frank Houston) and Will Chase (who played Debra’s lover Michael Swift).
This means that there is no love interest for Debra Messing’s character Julia Houston, until it was announced by NBC that actor Daniel Sunjata is joining the second season in a recurring role playing the new love interest. Sunjata has had roles in television shows such as FX’s Rescue Me and ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, and his film credits include The Devil Wears Prada, Gone, One for the Money and most recently he was in The Dark Knight Rises.
What do you think of this casting choice? Are you looking forward to season two of Smash?
