When Oscar winner, Jennifer Hudson huffs and puffs she’s might not be able to blown your house down but she can blow you away on stage. But there’s one Broadway diva who’s not afraid of a showdown with J Hud.
Megan Hilty, one of the stars of the TV show Smash, is hoping for a high drama, all diva moment with Hudson to kick off next season.
“I hope we have an angry duet,” Hilty revealed. “I’d like to really duke it out with her. If I know anything about Ivy, other people’s success is a threat to her, especially the women in the business. So if I had to guess, I’d have to say that they probably don’t get along very well.”
While her character Ivy may be threatened by strong women, Hilty wouldn’t mind if Smash covered tunes from a Broadway musical all about brave girls: Wicked. “I feel like Wicked would be a really fun idea, especially as a little theater inside joke,” she said of the musical, which she previously starred in as Glinda. “Even something like a 9 to 5 cover, and have a little mini-reunion. I’ve been trying to get [9 to 5 co-star] Allison Janney on the show. I think she would be fantastic. If we got her and Stephanie Block, we could all do something fun.”
Smash returns for its second season in 2013.
