NBC's SMASH scored huge when they got actress Uma Thurman to sign on for five episodes!!! The silver screen star made her SMASH debut as Rebecca Duvall on Sunday night's episode, portraying a starlet going after the Marilyn Monroe role in Bombshell!

Check out the pics of Uma as Marilyn (above)!!!

Thurman will appear in four more episodes of the show, one in particular features her performance of Monroe's infamous Happy Birthday, Mr. President!!

Uma even had the song Dig Deep specifically written for her by the show's executive producers, which she learned in just TWO days!

Pretty impressive!

We can't wait to see more of Uma on SMASH and are glad she decided to leap into TV and try it out for a change!

    Of all the people who remind me of Marilyn, Uma Thurman is never gonna be on that list! Maybe she'll prove me wrong next week but I have nmy doubts…do like this series though.

    I have not watched the show & do not know the plot line, but Uma Thurman seems like a terrible person to play Marilyn. Marilyn was known for her curves and confidence! Uma has a tubular figure and doesn't seem to fit the character at all.

    oh lord what horrible casting. im not sure how the first couple commenter's got Christina out of those…i kind of got an odd looking madonna drom them.
    they could have done soooo much better.

    I absolutely love this show, but when I heard that Uma Thurman was cast to play Marilyn I really had my doubts. I mean c'mon now! Marilyn was 5'5" and famously curvy and well Uma is famously tall and not so curvy lol. But, who knows maybe she can pull it off, I am excited to see which direction she takes the storyline. This show is very well written and very enjoyable to watch.

    She is a terrible Marilyn … it is so not cool they had two near semi perfect M.M in the show already and it is not that Uma is a bad actor it is just she doesn't fit the role of Marilyn personally i think that she is a little to old to play young Marilyn and she look like Xtina then Marilyn
