Remember Rick Springfield? He's the singer and actor who got famous in the 1980s for his hit single "Jessie's Girl" and for his stint on the soap opera General Hospital. Now he has people talking about his latest project, a guest appearance on the series Californication, where he'll play himself and strip down to his skivvies. According to Spinner.com, he said:
They were looking for a musician who's an actor and they liked what I did. They wrote the story around my name and they make references to my past and music. It's a very different character than me -- a twisted warped version of me at my worse.

I knew what the show was about, and the scenes that I read to get the part was certainly as full-on as anything I do on the show. I have no issues about being naked in a show. I think being naked just makes it funnier.

Springfield will appear on 4 episodes of the show, starting October 11. In his spare time, he's also working on writing his memoir, to pitch to publishers. He said, "But once you hit on a period in your life and you start writing about it, it's amazing what you remember. I had a varied life and have been involved in a lot of things -- some of which could have put me in prison -- but luckily it didn't."
