Here’s to the return of one of our favorite friends!

Lisa Kudrow will be joining the cast of  “Scandal,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Jewish actress of “Friends” fame has scored a recurring role as a politician on season 3 of the popular ABC drama.

Kudrow will be playing a politician, which probably means there’s no room for any ditzy Phoebe action. Then again, we have seen a ditzy politician or two in our day…

No further details on Kudrow’s character have been revealed, so we’ll just have to wait and see. “Scandal” returns on October 3 at 10 p.m.
