Smash Adds Newsies Star Jeremy Jordan

The rejiggering of Smash continues: TV Line reports that new showrunner Josh Safran has added Tony-nominated Newsies star Jeremy Jordan as a series regular. He'll play a self-destructive, Brooklyn-born singer, and since he's the only new straight male character the show is adding, we'd wager that he's a potential love interest for Katharine McPhee's Karen. (And sorry, Dearly Departed Dev, but: upgrade.)
