Elizabeth Hurley is coming to Gossip Girl this fall.

The actress, who co-starred in NBC’s ill-fated Wonder Woman pilot, is joining the upcoming fifth season for a multi-episode story arc, according to TV Line.

Co-executive producers Stephanie Savage and Joshua Safran say Hurley will play a character named Diana Payne, “a sexy, smart, self-made media mogul."

“Elizabeth Hurley’s sense of humor, intelligence and beauty fit the Gossip Girl world perfectly,” the duo added. “We feel very fortunate to have her.”

And get this:

Diana is described as "an all-around force to be reckoned with" whose entrance on the UES will "change the lives of all our characters - including, and especially, Gossip Girl herself."
