Katy Perry Shares a Sneak Peek at Her 'Raising Hope' Guest Stint
Katy Perry has landed another guest starring role. After starring in an episode of "How I Met Your Mother", the 27-year-old California-born singer is set to visit "Raising Hope" to play Rikki, a prison attendant who claims to be a friend from Sabrina's past.
Teasing fans of her upcoming appearance, the estranged wife of Russell Brand has tweeted a picture showing her in an officer uniform, and Shannon Woodward's Sabrina donning a prison garb. "@shannonwoodward, I hope I don't get type-cast," she wrote in a caption of the photo.
In real life, Perry and Woodward are best friends. Opening up about how she landed the role on the FOX comedy series, the "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" singer recalled, "A couple of weeks ago, I was home, just toasting up a frozen chicken fillet when Shannon called me up and asked if I wanted to do something 'fun' for a change and try out a guest role on her TV show."
"I thought, sure, I have nothing else to do, and I like chillin' with my best friend," she went on sharing. "Greg [Garcia, creator] was nice, but I hope he's not secretly sabotaging my potential future career by type-casting me in the role of just a looker, so that I would never be able to play anything more challenging."
Garcia, in his own words, detailed the casting as follows, "Shannon told me that her friend Katy was interested in doing an episode and I thought, why not? Let's do your friend Katy a favor. Then she came in and did a terrific job. And now people are telling me that Katy is also a singer. I sincerely hope that her appearance on the show helps her get her singing career off the ground."
"Single White Female", the episode in which Perry is set to appear, will air March 6. It will see Sabrina getting arrested after participating in an Occupy Natesville protest and being sentenced to two weeks in the pokey. Perry's character, Rikki, will make her stay a memorable one, so Entertainment Weekly reported.
