Katharine McPhee Reveals Who She Thinks Should Have Played Marilyn on 'Smash'

Katharine McPhee live-tweeted the season one finale of Smash on Friday night (March 27) and she revealed who she thinks should have played Marilyn Monroe in the musical Bombshell!

The NBC series followed the making of a new Broadway musical about the iconic actress and two actresses were competing for the role – Karen, a newcomer played by Kat, and Ivy, a Broadway veteran played by Megan Hilty.

At the end of season one, Karen has earned the role of Marilyn and stars in the out-of-town production of Bombshell. In the second season though, Karen quits the show to star in the musical Hit List and Ivy ends up bringing the show to Broadway. Ivy wins the Tony Award for Best Actress.

So, who does Kat think should’ve played the role?

“if you want my HONEST opinion- love you Karen, but Ivy probably should’ve been Marilyn. #SmashLives,” Kat tweeted.
