Sources confirm that Tyra Banks has signed on to appear on Gossip Girl this fall — and she’s not playing herself. The model-turned-media mogul will guest as an actress co-starring in a film with Hilary Duff’s character. Banks is scheduled to show up in episode 4.

Banks hasn’t had a straight-up acting gig since 2004, when she guest-starred in an episode of American Dreams.
