What happens when a sex addict falls for a boy-crazy student? We’ll find out later this year when Rescue Me and Numb3rs alum Diane Farr joins the third season of Showtime’s Californication as a horny grad student who falls for David Duchovny’s carnally-obsessed Hank.

The 10-episode gig is Farr’s first since giving birth to twin girls, Sawyer Lucia Chung and Coco Trinity Chung, last August. She also has a 2-year-old son, Beckett, with husband Seung Yong Chung.

“Staying home with three little kids for six months has made me wonder if I might drown in a sea of velour sweat pants,” the actress says with a laugh. “Californication is like a grooming life-preserver for me. I can’t wait to go to work.”

Farr’s especially looking forward to not having to channel yet another tough chick in uniform. “I am so excited to play someone who is girlie,” she enthuses, “and wears a sundress without a gun or a fire hose in my hand.”
