My bet is on Katharine McPhee! It seems logical, somehow.
However, because that choice seems too logical, perhaps the producers will opt for Megan Hilty.
Ether way, it is one or the other. Boy, am I addicted to this show! Everything about it appeals to me – the actors, the storyline, the Broadway music and, particularly, watching Katharine McPhee blossom into a superstar actress before our eyes.
If anyone was born for his role, it is Katharine, plain and simple. She has the perfect combination of vulnerability and sexuality that we so strongly associate with Marilyn Monroe.. And her voice exudes these qualities as well. Such a nuanced instrument!
Prediction: this show is either Broadway-bound or destined for the silver screen or both. And everyone will be mega stars. The music is wonderful, with contagious melodies and memorable lyrics. I love the mixture of new and cover songs. The production numbers are also so entertaining to watch.
So tune into NBC tonight at 10:00 P.M. It’s going to be a great finale.
Finally, my question to you is: Who will play Marilyn? Talk to me in the comments section.
