Rupaul won't be playing himself, though. The actor, whose TV credits include parts on Ugly Betty, Popular and Veronica's Closet, is set to appear as Alex (Elisha Cuthbert) and Jane's (Eliza Coupe) hairdresser when he takes on Max (Adam Pally) as a new client.

Happy Endings also recently announced that fan-favorite Stephen Guarino would be returning as the flamboyant Derrick after last appearing in the second season finale.

The All-Star season of RuPaul's reality competition, RuPaul's Drag Race, is currently airing on LOGO -- with a fifth season slated to premiere in early 2013. RuPaul is repped by CAA.
