Kristin Chenoweth Joins 'The Good Wife' in Recurring Role
On the heels of announcing two big roles filled to be filled by Maura Tierney and Marc Warren, The Good Wife is adding another big name to its large roster of guest actors in the upcoming fourth season.

Broadway veteran and Emmy winner Kristin Chenoweth, who most recently starred on ABC's axed GCB, joins the series as a recurring character during the September season premiere.

Also starring on Pushing Daisies and appearing in a string of well-received Glee cameos, Chenoweth will play a political reporter who tries to uncover profession (and personal) dirt on the secretly separated Alicia (Julianna Margulies) and Peter (Chris Noth) Florrick.

The third big addition to the upcoming season, Chenoweth will help fill the gap left by several recurring guests who have since booked new series. Repeat Good Wife actors Matthew Perry, Mamie Gummer and Tim Guinee are among those in pilots that were picked up for the new season.
Still, that hasn't stopped many Good Wife guests with other gigs. Raising Hope's Martha Plimpton and True Blood's Carrie Preston have both continued to make appearances.

'Smash' Enlists Oscar Winner Jennifer Hudson for Season 2
Smash's upcoming second season has added a dream girl.

Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson has landed a multiple-episode arc on the NBC Broadway drama, the network announced Friday.
Hudson, who won a supporting actress Academy Award for the big-screen musical Dreamgirls, will play Veronica Moore, a Tony-winning Broadway star who impacts Karen (Katharine McPhee) and Ivy's (Megan Hilty) lives.

"We're thrilled to have Jennifer Hudson coming to ‘Smash,’” NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt said. “This series is a showcase for some of the best musical talent in the business and that's a fitting description for Jennifer Hudson. Her character will represent someone who reached their Broadway dream but also paid a price for it."

Hudson will make her debut in the Season 2 premiere, which is slated for midseason. The former American Idol Season 3 finalist, in addition to her Oscar, is also a Golden Globe and Grammy winner and joins an already impressive cast of Broadway stars including Tony nominee Jeremy Jordan, who will play a Brooklyn-born singer with a self-destructive streak.

“First Dreamgirls,’ now Smash. I have no doubt Jennifer will continue to deliver even more inspiration to the audience responsible for giving us a second season on NBC. It's wonderful to be reunited with her at DreamWorks Television and NBC," executive producer Steven Spielberg said.

Hudson's casting comes after the NBC musical drama gave walking papers to four stars from its freshman run, including Jaime Cepero (Ellis), Raza Jaffrey (Dev) and Brian D'Arcy James (Frank), the latter of whom will return in some capacity to wrap up his story line opposite Debra Messing's Julia and mere months after Gossip Girl's Josh Safran boarded the series as showrunner.

Hudson's credits include the Sex and the City feature and The Secret Life of Bees. The Grammy winner for her self-titled debut is repped by Overbrook Entertainment and Abrams Garfinkel.

Lifetime Gives Devious Maids 13-Episode Order!
The maids are about to get devious on Lifetime. The female-centric network has ordered Marc Cherry's "Devious Maids" to series after ABC passed on the pilot.

“We are thrilled to be getting into business with one of entertainment’s true visionaries," Lifetime said in statement. "This show and Marc Cherry’s unique story telling voice perfectly articulate Lifetime’s strategy of attracting top-tier creatives with their most original and exciting projects.”

Lifetime, which had been rumored to be in talks to pick up the series, will air 13 episodes of the series with a 2013 launch. The series follows the lives of five maids, "with ambition and dreams of their own while they work for the rich and famous in Beverly Hills," according to Lifetime. "Devious Maids" stars Ana Ortiz ("Ugly Betty"), Judy Reyes ("Scrubs"), Dania Ramirez ("Heroes"), Roselyn Sanchez ("Without a Trace"), Edy Ganem ("Livin’ Loud"), Grant Show ("Melrose Place"), Brianna Brown ("Homeland"), Rebecca Wisocky ("American Horror Story"), Tom Irwin ("Grey’s Anatomy"), Mariana Klaveno ("True Blood"), Brett Cullen ("Damages"), Drew Van Acker ("Pretty Little Liars") and "All My Children" veteran Susan Lucci.

“Marc Cherry is a visionary, and we are honored to share his newest inspiration, 'Devious Maids,' with Lifetime,” Barry Jossen, executive vice president of creative and production at ABC Studios, said in a statement. "'Devious Maids' is a perfect series for ABC Studios to continue its successful collaboration with the incredibly talented team at Lifetime."

The show earned a bit of criticism about its depiction of the Latino community, but Eva Longoria told HuffPost that the show is "a reality so why not tell their story and their point of view ... I think people really need to look at the paradigm of television and go, 'This is a very powerful medium for Latinos to have a voice. Let's support it so that they will make more of these.'"
