Sean Hayes to guest star in multiple episodes of NBC’s Smash

Will play a TV and movie star making Broadway debut

Sean Hayes to guest star in multiple episodes of NBC’s Smash
13 August 2012

Sean Hayes, an Emmy winning sensation on NBC’s Will & Grace for eight years, is returning to the network this fall for a short-term role on the musical-drama Smash.

His character will be a television and film star named Terrence Falls who came to fame in comedy roles. Terrence will not be a part of the cast of the Marilyn Monroe musical that has been at the center of the show’s plotline. Instead, Terrence will be making his Broadway debut in a musical based on the novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses and somehow develops an antagonistic relationship with several of the show’s characters including Ivy (Megan Hilty).

Hayes was nominated for a Tony Award in 2010 for his Broadway debut in a revival of the musical Promises, Promises.

The gig reunites Hayes with Will & Grace co-star Debra Messing who plays a writer on the show involved in plenty of off-stage drama.

Smash, which also stars Angelica Huston, Katherine McPhee and Christian Borle, is undergoing a reboot between seasons and added to the cast will be Jennifer Hudson, Jeremy Jordan and Andy Mientus.

The Smash role is not Hayes only guest arc in the coming season. He will also appear in multiple episodes of the NBC drama Up All Night. He is also executive producer of the NBC series Grimm and of the TV Land sitcom Hot In Cleveland.
