Fooled you! The sweet Nickelodeon star IS getting arrested – but only for her latest role!

Who would have thought that Miranda Cosgrove. of all people, would be joining the Hollywood Hot Mess club? The iCarly star is about to be arrested on a DUI charge — on the small screen, that is. PHEW!

The 17-year-old Nickelodeon star is going to be playing troubled pop star Sloan on The Good Wife, who becomes Alicia’s (Julianna Margulies) latest client after she’s arrested for drunk driving.

“We’re big iCarly fans, so we really couldn’t think of anyone better for this role than Miranda Cosgrove,” producer Robert King tells EW. “We were thrilled when she agreed to do it. It’ll be fun to see her handle both the comedy and drama in the role, and we can’t wait to see how she’ll play across from Julianna.” The episode is slated to air Nov. 16.

Thank God Miranda is only acting for her latest role! Although she has a paparazzi-packed trial on the small screen, the scenario DOES sound slightly similar to 24-year-old Lindsay Lohan‘s court appearance today — the one which landed her back in the slammer without bail for 28 days!
