0 April 29th, 2009 Rick Springfield to play himself on Californication!

EW’s Michael Ausiello is reporting that Rick Springfield (the reappearng Noah Drake on “GH”) has signed on to play himself in four episodes of Californication! Seems the producers of the Showtime dramedy put out a casting call looking for “an actor who experienced huge fame in the 80′s to play themselves as a now down-on his-luck-ex-celebrity waiting tables to get by.”

Ausiello goes on to say: “Props to Springfield for having the guts to poke a little fun at himself. And for being down with the “tasteful nudity” and “simulated sex” that I’m told the role requires. (That noise you hear is millions of middle-aged General Hospital fans squealing, “We’re going to see Dr. Drake’s naughty bits!”)
