Debra Messing and Christian Borle were seen on the set of the TV show Smash filming in New York City last week. After a 15 episode debut season the smash hit, horrible pun fully intended, is gearing up for a 13 episode second season. The main characters are all back for the second season which is scheduled to hit the air waves later this year.
Christian Borle has spent most of his acting career on Broadway and even won a Tony Award for his performance in Peter and the Starcatcher. If you've been making a career on Broadway and want to make your way into television, playing a part in a show about a play would make for a smart and easy transition. It must be nice, and much easier for him to act on TV. You don't get second takes on Broadway.
