Goodbye, Hannah Horvath, hello, Kinky Sue!

Lena Dunham is leaving Brooklyn behind for Washington, D.C., when the Girls creator and star guest stars on Scandal's March 19 episode, and judging from her character's name (see: Kinky Sue!), as well as her much tweeted-about wig, it's going to be freakin' epic. 

And at the ABC hit's Paleyfest panel over the weekend, we got the cast to dish on Dunham's buzzed-about appearance.

"What doesn't she bring into the office?" Guillermo Diaz teases of Dunham stirring up trouble when her character comes into OPA looking for help. "Listen, I'm just going to say one word: dustbuster."

Dunham's never been shy about her love of Scandal, even revealing during an interview, "Basically, my life's great passion is the idea of being a guest star on Scandal."

But it seems like the Scandal cast is equally as taken by her, with Katie Lowes gushing, "I'm obsessed with her. We're so lucky...I just wanna be around Lena all the time." 

And star Josh Malina, who admits he "pursued her as a cyber-friend" on Twitter, tells us he would appear on Girls "in a second. I think I've already lobbied her, thus far unsuccessfully."

But which Scandal star has already been on Girls?! Press play on our interviews with the cast above to find out and to get more scoop on Dunham's debut!

Scandal airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on ABC, with Lena Dunham's episode set to air on March 19.
