Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Lena Dunham, creator of Girls, will guest star on Scandal sometime in March.
Saturday Night Live spoofed the Shonda Rhimes show on an episode that Lena Dunham hosted, and Dunham has actually talked about guest starring on the show before. She told Bill Simmons on Grantland‘s B.S. Report that, “Basically, my life’s great passion is the idea of being a guest star on Scandal. I want to be like, a senator who did something wrong.”
Dunham’s role is being kept under wraps, but she will appear in one episode and be involved with Pope & Associates in some capacity. A client, perhaps?
Last month, Lena Dunham actually hired the “real life” Olivia Pope — Judy Smith — to crisis manage her life.
