'Smash' Scoop! Expect More Dylan & Becky Ann Baker

Dylan and Becky Ann BakerEven though we have months -- and I mean several long months -- to go before NBC's 'Smash' debuts in 2012, that hasn't stopped the fevered anticipation for the new musical series.

Starring Katharine McPhee, Debra Messing and Anjelica Huston, the Steven Spielberg-produced drama has gotten a ton of early buzz from the industry and press -- including yours truly and just about the entire AOL TV staff -- and just received a special preview during 'The Voice' finale.

I caught up with Dylan and Becky Ann Baker at the premiere of DirecTV's 'Damages,' which Dylan stars in this season, and couldn't resist asking the real-life married couple about their role as mom and dad to McPhee's aspiring Broadway star Karen.

The duo have a brief dinner scene in the pilot with McPhee and her TV boyfriend, played by Raza Jaffrey, but that won't be the last viewers see of them.

"We've got a little bit more coming up,' Becky Ann, who many will remember as Jean Weir on the cult-classic 'Freaks and Geeks,' said.

Just how much more?

"We've heard from [executive producer] Theresa Rebeck that she wants to get us back there," Dylan said. "We figure even though we live in wherever we live -- Kansas or wherever -- she said, 'There's the backer's audition, there's the opening night, there's the this and the that.' We're very attentive parents, we'll be there."

And we'll keep looking forward to it.

'Smash' debuts midseason, paired with Season 2 of 'The Voice,' on NBC.
