Morning television’s Kathie Lee Gifford makes a guest appearance in Smash 2×13 “The Producers.” Check out more stills from the upcoming episode below.

Airing April 27, “The Producers” will see Gifford donning a blonde wig and joining Ivy at Bombshell rehearsals. Who could she be playing? An older Marilyn in a flashforward?

Gifford, known for Live With Regis and Kathie Lee and her co-hosting gig during the fourth hour of the Today show with Hoda Kotb, has written and contributed to several musicals, including Scandalous! and Under The Bridge.

Of note among the new photos: Jimmy’s playfulness with an unknown blonde and more looks at Ana and Karen in Hit List.

An off-the-rail Jimmy (Jeremy Jordan) threatens “Hit List’s” future, as Karen (Katharine McPhee), Derek (Jack Davenport), Ana (Krysta Rodriguez) and Kyle (Andy Mientus) try to help him before something bad happens. Tom (Christian Borle) and Julia’s (Debra Messing) partnership is strained to the breaking point just as Ivy (Megan Hilty), Eileen (Anjelica Huston), and the entire “Bombshell” team are running themselves ragged to outshine the competition. Jeremy Jordan and Leslie Odom, Jr. also star. Kathie Lee Gifford and Jesse L. Martin guest star.
