Busy Philipps has landed a guest-starring role as a love interest for Felix on The Odd Couple, EW has learned exclusively.

The Cougar Town alum will play Natasha, a woman Felix (Thomas Lennon) meets in a bar and takes home for what is meant to be his first one-night stand. However, it becomes a standoff when she decides she likes Felix and his amazing apartment so much that she never intends to leave.

Philipps, whose credits also include Vice Principals, ER, and Dawson’s Creek, will appear in one episode slated to air later this year.

The Odd Couple‘s third season kicks off Monday, Oct. 17 at 9:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
