Rick Springfield will be taking his clothes off during his upcoming guest appearance on Showtime's Californication, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"It's not full-frontal, but it's pretty much full on," the 60-year-old musician-actor says. "As long as it's for the part, I'm cool with it. And it's funny. It's not done to be particularly sexy."
Springfield will appear on four episodes, and he sheds his clothes by the end of the season. His first episode airs Sunday. He plays a washed-up movie star who wants to rebuild his career.
He says his character, also named Rick Springfield, is a "very twisted, warped version" of himself.
He bares his backside during a party scene featuring show stars David Duchovny and Evan Handler. "I've got a sore back from carrying this naked girl around," he said.
Springfield said "great writing" drew him to Californication, adding that his character could return next season.
