Thorsten Kaye (ABC)

New love interest.

According to TV Guide, Thorsten Kaye (ex-Zach) will appear in the new series "Smash." The show follows the making of a Broadway musical based on Marilyn Monroe's life. Kaye will play a bartender who catches the eye of Anjelica Huston's ("Prizzi's Honor") character, soon to be divorced producer Ellen Rand. He apparently will "help her do more than drown her sorrows."

"Smash" also stars Debra Messing ("Will & Grace") and Katharine McPhee (American Idol) and is produced by Steven Spielberg ("War Horse"). The musical dramedy will premiere on February 6 on NBC at 10.00 PM EST.
