Nicole Richie Brings Her Mean Girl Skills to Chuck

How I Met Your Mother got Britney, Ugly Betty got Lindsay, and now Chuck is getting . . . Nicole?

That's right: Nicole Richie is headed to NBC's spy comedy for one episode in the Fall. And she might want to have a chat with Lindsay first, because Richie's role will be something Lindsay knows a little something about: the mean girl.

Richie's character will be "a snarky and spiteful girl" who spent her high school years torturing Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski). Richie's character and Sarah will butt heads again when Sarah's forced to attend her 10-year high school reunion for a mission — with Chuck as her date.

In a press release from NBC and Warner Bros., which produces the show, Chuck's co-creator Josh Schwartz said: "Nicole auditioned for the part and was very funny. This role is a great opportunity for her to show off her comedic skills and be diabolically evil and kick some butt. It's going to be really fun."

Richie hasn't done a ton of acting — unless you count The Simple Life — with a role in the high school comedy Kids in America and small guest stints on 8 Simple Rules and American Dreams among her only credits. But it seems like Richie should be able to pull off the spiteful, mean-girl thing pretty well, no?
