Lena Dunham will guest-star in the season 27 premiere of The Simpsons in an episode title “Every Man’s Dream,” as a potential homewrecker.

EW reports that the exhibitionist star will voice Candace, a young pharmacist who Homer develops a crush on. As for any potential stripping down, Lena’s signature move, executive producer AJ Jean played a bit coy. “She has tattoos—and we see some of them,” he said. He also noted that the plot of the episode is “definitely not what you would expect.”

“For those who are sick of marriage crisis episodes, it goes in a completely different direction than any before,” Jean noted. And the character isn’t exactly based on Lena or her alter-ego Hannah Hovarth, but it was tailor made for the actress. “It’s that funny, intellectual, slightly awkward, endearing tone that everybody’s familiar with, so we were just writing it with her voice in our heads.”
