The drama in NBC's Good Girls may be at an all-time high right now, but it's about to get even better with the addition of a new recurring character.

TV Insider has learned exclusively that Lauren Lapkus (Crashing, The Big Bang TheoryOrange Is the New Black) is joining stars Christina Hendricks, Retta and Mae Whitman in a "key" Season 3 role. The actress, who is repped by UTA, will portray Phoebe Donnegan, a smart, driven young woman who is a bit on the nerdy side and owns it.

Lapkus isn't set to appear until Episode 8, but we hear she will play a major part in the third season. And consiering what we know about Beth (Hendricks), Ruby (Retta) and Annie (Whitman), it sounds like her character will fit right in. A beta in high school, Phoebe is looking to right the wrongs of her youth and become a full alpha.
