Thurman, 41, will portray a famous (but somewhat difficult) movie star who considers starring in Marilyn, the fictional musical within the series.

An Oscar nominee for Pulp Fiction, Thurman is best known for her roles in Kill Bill, Vol. 1 and 2 and Batman & Robin. She will next appear in the big-screen adaptation of the book Eloise in Paris.
