The Mindy Project is returning this fall with a big shot guest starring actor!
According to FOX, James Franco (127 hours, Pineapple Express) booked a two-episode arc on the sitcom’s upcoming sophomore season. He will appear on the premiere episode all the way until the season’s second episode.
Franco will play Dr. Paul Leotard, the charismatic and popular doctor who replaces MINDY (Mindy Kaling) at Shulman & Associates while she is in Haiti on a volunteer mission. A former professional fashion model, Dr. Leotard radically altered his career goals after he accidentally walked off a runway at fashion week and was saved by a pregnant woman. From that day forward, he devoted himself to helping pregnant women and immediately applied to medical school.
‘The Mindy Project’ launches its second season on Sept. 24 at 9:30 PM.
