Francesca Eastwood is headed to "Perception." Yahoo TV has exclusively learned that the former Miss Golden Globe is set to guest star in an upcoming third-season episode of the TNT crime drama.

Eastwood, who's the daughter of actor-director Clint Eastwood and actress Frances Fisher, will play Josephine, a 19-year-old model muse who gets pulled into a murder investigation following an art museum heist of a portrait that her artistic admirer painted of her. The star-studded schizophrenia drama series also stars Eric McCormack, Rachael Leigh Cook, Arjay Smith, Kelly Rowan, LeVar Burton, and Scott Wolf.

The guest-starring role on "Perception" isn't the first TV appearance for the 20-year-old actress. In addition to her 2013 turn at the 70th Golden Globe Awards, Eastwood previously starred in the E! reality series "Mrs. Eastwood & Company" with her sister and stepmom.

Of course, it's not exactly a surprise that the acting bug bit this Eastwood. Last year she told Us Weekly she was "obsessed" with the movie "Titanic" when her mom was shooting it: "I would make her reenact scenes with me," she said.

As a young child, Eastwood also had small parts in her parents' movies. In 1999 she had a role in her dad's movie "True Crime," and in 1995 she appeared in her mom's film "The Stars Fell on Henrietta."

The third season of "Perception" is slated to begin on June 17 on TNT.
