We’ve seen Lena Dunham with bleached blonde locks, a short brown ‘do and even GREEN hair. This time, Lena’s sporting a brown wig for her guest spot on ‘Scandal’ on Mar. 19 — and it looks like it could belong in a parody!
Girls and Scandal fans, unite! Lena Dunham, 28, is headed to the ABC network to star in an upcoming episode of Scandal, and she’s got a new look. We love the idea of Lena guesting on one of TV’s hottest shows, but her brown wig is SO obvious. Do you agree?
Lena Dunham’s Wig On ‘Scandal’ — Brown Hair For Guest Appearance
The Girls creator and star often mentions her love for Scandal in interviews, and even performed in a Saturday Night Live parody sketch of the show when she hosted SNL back in March 2014. It’s her turn to guest-star on Scandal for real this time, but the brown wig that her character sports looks as though it’s better off in that SNL sketch!
The episode that Lena will star in is called “It’s Good to Be Kink”. According to ABC, in the episode’s plot, “Olivia [Pope] springs into action when she hears of a woman intending to expose sex secrets of some of D.C.’s most elite.” Judging from the photos, that “woman” is Lena. We can’t wait to see what mischief her character gets up to — and knowing Lena, there will be plenty!
Lena Dunham’s Cozy Pic With ‘Scandal’ Co-Star Kerry Washington
It’s no secret that Lena is a fan of Scandal and its star, Kerry Washington, 38, and now we’ve got this Instagram to prove it! Lena cozied up with co-star Kerry and gave her a sweet peck on the cheek. We love to see ladies getting along, but of course we’re still looking forward to the drama that will surely unfold between Olivia and Lena’s character Kinky Sue (yes, that’s her real name)!
Lena’s episode of Scandal airs on March 19 at 9 p.m. on ABC, wig and all! Will you be watching, HollywoodLifers? Let us know.
