Jennifer Hudson is finally coming to Broadway, sort of. The Oscar-winning Dreamgirls actress has signed on to do a multi-episode arc next season on NBC's Smash, where she'll play a Tony-winning star "who reached [her] Broadway dream but also paid a price for it," according to the network. And she is telling you, she's not going ... because she's in tech.
