After stars like Lisa Kudrow, Peter Gallagher, Rita Moreno, Wendie Malick, Carrie Preston and Christine Lahti appeared on the show, the latest confirmed celebrity guest to appear on Grace and Frankie is Nicole Richie. The fifth season of the show has another guest star confirmed for 2019, and it’s RuPaul.
Grace and Frankie stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin as two women whose lives are turned upside down when their husbands (Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston) reveal they are gay and are leaving their wives for each other.
ET reports that Richie’s character will be a quirky pop star who, according to costume designer Allyson Fanger, is “an interesting character”. “It’s a little anime-ish, but she can carry it! She can do anything,” Fanger said. “At the table read, she was so funny. She really flowed so well with the cast.”
Richie currently stars on Tina Fey’s cable news comedy, Great News, as the delightfully vapid co-host of the fictional news program, The Breakdown.
Grace and Frankie will return to Netflix in 2019.
