Thurman to guest star in new TV musical

The Kill Bill actress will star in five episodes of Smash, an upcoming drama about the production of a Broadway musical based on the life of Marilyn Monroe.

Thurman will play a famous and somewhat difficult movie star who flirts with the idea of appearing in the ‘Marilyn’ stage show.

The series will star Debra Messing, Christian Borle and Brian d’Arcy James as full-time characters.
