Hurley will play a character named Diana Payne, who’s “a sexy, smart, self-made media mogul and all-around force to be reckoned with.”

The “Austin Powers” star was first supposed to appear on television this fall in the less-than-wonderful “Wonder Woman” pilot that got canned, but when her schedule opened up, the “Gossip Girls” gang scooped her up.
