The actress took to Instagram to show the surprise appearance, posting a picture of the couple in character, her in Candy's signature short curls and an old-school blue outfit while Justin looked like he had aged himself ten years with a gelled hairstyle and retro suit. 

She cheekily captioned the post: "Watch out, Candy. There's a new sheriff in town," revealing her husband's cameo role, and he hilariously replied in character, commenting: "I know you did it."

Fans were both taken aback and delighted by the unexpected transformation, hailing them "couple goals" and writing: "Must have been hard for the make-up artist to transform this beautiful couple into this," and: "Wait he's in it this is hilarious," as well as: "OMG!

I said, 'Oh, I don't know. Probably like a local amazing actor from Atlanta.'" because they had maxed out their budget, to which her husband replied: "I want to play this part."
