Filming for the upcoming second season of Smash began in July, and we now have our first look at Newsies star Jeremy Jordan’s role in the NBC musical drama.
Broadway.com captured the shot of Katharine McPhee (Karen) and Jordan filming a scene together on location in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood July 30.
Jordan joined the cast in June and will play a “very sexy (and straight) Brooklyn-born singer with a self-destructive streak,” according to TVLine.
“I think I’m bringing a young male energy to it, which I don’t think they really had in the first season,” Jordan told Broadway.com. “They wanted sexy energy—at least that’s what they told me.”
