Lena Dunham to Guest Star on ‘Scandal’
Lena Dunham will be guest starring in everyone's favorite political television drama. Dropping the trademark with and swapping Hannah's antics, for what looks like a chic Olivia Pope-approved two-piece powersuit, Lena joins the gladiators for an upcoming episode of Scandal. A guest spot on Scandal is not something we expected from the Girls actress, but you can bet we are looking forward to it.
The nature of Lena's role hasn't been revealed, but Mashable posted some of the stills and published a synopsis of the episode. According to the site, the episode is titled "It's Good to be Kink," and we can expect to find Olivia springing into action "when she hears of a woman intending to expose sex secrets of some of DC's most elite."
Juicy! This sounds like perfect fit for sassy Lena, who often grapples with sexcapades of a different nature as Hannah. Her attire and sneaky smile imply that she'll be playing a powerful woman with quite a lot of tricks up her sleeve. We aren't too sure how we feel about that wig though, although it definitely screams "D.C. elite."
Lena has been doing super well for herself these days. She just published her memoir, Not That Kind of Girl, and Girls is renewed for a fifth season. Now that we think about it, Lena guest starring on Scandal seems like the perfect fit. Maybe Olivia Pope and Lena have more in common than we thought.
If you want to tune in, which we recommend it even if you don't watch the sassy political drama, the episode will air on ABC on March 19 at 9PM ET.
