Earlier this month, producers of the Showtime series 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."

Enter Springfield, previously seen on General Hospital. He'll reportedly take part in a bit of "tasteful nudity" and "simulated sex" on the show.

Millions of soap opera followers and "Jessie's Girl" listeners just screamed their lungs out.

Californication Quotes

I feel like the good lord himself picked me up with his bare hands, laid me down on a bed of rusty nails, pinned my ankles behind my ears and just stuck it in. No Vaseline no lube no nothin. Not even a little spittle. That mother fu-ker just took his Darth Vader helmet, that big Darth Vader helmet and just rammed it home. He wrecked my pretty little virgin a--hole, my sweet little brown bud. Pulled out, came on my t-ts, wiped his di-k on the curtains and left me for dead. That's just me. How bout you guys?

Nobody likes you. You're ugly and your mother dresses you funny. Now smile, you f--cking douche!
