C'mon get happy! Oscar winner Shirley Jones has signed on for a short-term Days of our Lives appearance. The actress will played the presumed dead Colleen Brady. Her appearance is slated to run through the February Sweeps period.

Oscar-winning actress and Partridge, Shirley Jones, will join the cast of Days of our Lives next month in the role of Colleen Brady. The actress confirmed the news in an interview with trade publication Variety.

"It's hard work," Jones told noted columnist Army Archerd. "I didn't want to do it, but they gave me more money than" could be turned down.

For the short-term role, Jones will be required to speak with an Irish brogue. To make sure she sounds authentic, Jones is currently working with prominent voice coach Robert Easton to perfect the accent.

Jones' acting portfolio is extensive. She started off on Broadway in "South Pacific" and quickly transitioned to the silver screen. Her first starring role was the 1955 production of Oklahoma. The highlight of her accomplished career came just six years later: an Academy Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for Elmer Gantry. Despite that high honor, she may forever be best known to the masses as Shirley Partridge on the 1970s television series, "The Partridge Family."

With the addition of Jones to the cast, the show is presumably looking to wrap up one of its recent love-and-tragedy storylines. Colleen presumably died at a young age, falling or jumping from a cliff. Her death was been called both an accident and murder.

Jones will appear on the show from January 31st through February 7th.
