That slimy, lurking, DETESTABLE Ellis (Jaime Cepero) "producer" character will only be returning to SMASH's second season to wrap up his story line.
Thank the television GODS!
AND Karen’s (Katharine McPhee) cheating, depressed lover-boy Dev (Raza Jaffrey) has also been downsized to series unregular, along with Julia’s boring husband Frank (Brian d'Arcy James) and her not-so-secret beau Michael Swift (Will Chase).
Now new showrunner Josh Safran just needs some power-player leading lads, no more of these weasly, wet types!
But we don’t necessarily want more harda** directors, either…
We're happy with the one we've got!
