Word must be out about how well "The Young and the Restless'" Melody Thomas Scott plays Genoa City's Nikki Newman when she's off the wagon, as she's been hired to guest star on the primetime sitcom "The Crazy Ones" as a tipsy librarian. TV Guide reports that the episode, in which Scott interacts with the show's stars, Robin Williams ("Good Morning Vietnam," "Good Will Hunting") and Sarah Michelle Gellar ("Buffy The Vampire Slayer," ex-Kendall, "All My Children"), will air in mid-April.

Scott has previously done guest stints on "Castle," "My Name Is Earl," and "The King Of Queens," to name just a few.
