Smash will not premiere until midseason, but the hated-upon NBC drama has announced casting calls for three new series regulars.
As first reported by TV Line, the following characters will play major season two roles...
Courtney: A 20-something African-American chorus member outlined as “incredibly attractive and confident, but also open-minded and non-judgmental.”
Danny: Another 20-something, hails from Brooklyn, straight, described as a “sexy, charismatic and musically gifted, but also self-destructive and remote.
Joe: Also from Brooklyn and planned as a “gay, very cute, incredibly open and optimistic" actor/singer/dancer.
NBC, which released its 2012-2013 schedule last week, has not announced an exact return date for Smash.
UPDATE: Jennifer Hudson and Jeremy Jordan have been signed on for major Season 2 roles.
