Olivia Pope must be a “Smelly Cat” fan.

Lisa Kudrow, who played guitar-strumming free spirit Pheobe Buffay for 10 seasons on “Friends,” will join the ABC drama “Scandal” in a recurring role in season three.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Kudrow will play a politician, but further details about her character have not been disclosed.  Sadly, it's probably safe to assume she will not go by the name Regina Phalange.

The series, from creator Shonda Rhimes, stars Emmy nominee Kerry Washington as Washington crisis manager Olivia Pope, and Tony Goldwyn as President Fitzgerald Grant.

Last season, “Felicity” alum Scott Foley joined in a recurring role and will be upped to a regular when “Scandal” returns Oct. 3.
