The sexy songstress will play a character named Rikki ... a prison attendant who claims to be friend's with character Sabrina.

Executive Producer Greg Garcia said initially that actress Shannon Woodward told him that Perry was her friend and asked if he would audition the singer. Garcia recalls Perry's audition saying:

    "Then she came in and did a terrific job. She was hilarious. 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. It's a tough business.”

As for nabbing the role, Katy added:

    “Shannon Woodward is my best friend. A couple weeks ago, I was home, just toasting up a frozen chicken fillet when she 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."

The episode is set to air on March 6.

Do you think Katy can pull off the role?
