LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Fans of “Smash” will be getting an extra treat from Debra Messing during Season 2.
The actress, who plays Broadway songwriter/lyricist Julia Houston on the NBC hit, will herself be belting out a tune.
“I am singing this season,” she told Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush on the red carpet at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday. “I’m gonna be singing an original song written by my character.”
But did Debra contribute to writing the song she’ll be singing?
“No, I’m not that gifted!” she said with a laugh.
A host of household names will guest star on “Smash” in the upcoming season – including Jennifer Hudson, Jesse L. Martin, Daniel Sunjata, Liza Minnelli and Debra’s former “Will & Grace” co-star Sean Hayes, and the actress said fans will not be disappointed with the second season.
“We have all these new characters – lots of dancing, lots of singing and great new sort of intrigue – I think people are going to love it,” she said.
“Smash” Season 2 premieres on February 5 at 9/8c on NBC.
