Hilary Duff, Jennifer Love Hewitt

While Hilary Duff passes the time until her new NBC comedy Barely Legal kicks off, she clearly must have figured she'd spend some QT with her friends.

More specifically, she plotted a little face time with her buddy Jennifer Love Hewitt, whom she'll join on the set of Ghost Whisperer. That's right, the erstwhile Lizzie Maguire will be making a special appearance on the CBS drama, the network confirms to E! News.

Her character is described as mysterious, so maybe she'll be responsible for killing someone before she becomes the youngest lawyer ever in the state of California on her own show.

Either way, with movies like War, Inc., a muffed attempt at a new single with "Reach Out" last fall and a little dirty dancing (or not), returning to the land that made her famous in the first place—television—may help Duff rediscover the right stuff.
