Britney Spears set for Smash?

If the rumors are true, it won't be Spears' first TV acting gig - she started out as a regular on kids show The Mickey Mouse Club and has appeared on Glee, How I Met Your Mother and Will & Grace.

Smash chronicles two wannabe theater stars fighting for the lead role in a fictional Marilyn Monroe musical.

The all-star cast features Anjelica Huston, Debra Messing, Katharine McPhee and Megan Hilty.
