Katharine McPhee didn’t allow the failure of of her NBC show, Smash, to stop her! The American Idol alum moved right along to another network series. Last night she dropped by Late Show with David Letterman to chat about her role as a waitress and single mother in the new CBS show, Scorpion.
The show is loosely based on the life of extreme genius, Walter O’Brien. In the series, Walter’s character heads a group of crime fighting geniuses. The character Katharine plays acts as a liaison between them and the real world, while raising a genius son of her own.
Dave couldn’t resist asking Katharine, “Have you had nude photos on the internet?” which took her quite by surprise. The question is in reference to the leak of nude photos stolen from the phones of high profile actresses. NO. Katharine keeps her iCloud naked-photo-free. But she does suggest the crime could be a plot on an upcoming episode of the show!
Scorpion premiers on CBS on Monday, September 22.
