The Office’s Mindy Kaling is just reeling in the cast for her upcoming FOX comedy!
It’s been reported that The Mindy Project has tacked on stars from shows like MadTV, Gossip Girl and Glee for the show’s first season!
The comedy will follow Mindy, as she plays the role of a young, new doctor…all while she tries to track down Mr. Right!
While Chris Messina and Ed Weeks have previously been announced as her co-stars, Glee’s Stephen Tobolowsky is slated to play Dr. Marc Schulman — better known to all the Gleeks out there as the old New Directions’ head, Sandy Ryerson!
Another series regular added to the cast? Amanda Setton, from Gossip Girl! Amanda played Penelope in the CW series and will soon take on the role of Shauna Dicanio, a Jerseylicious office manager!
The hospital will also get treated to a new tactless male nurse, MadTV’s Ike Barinholtz, who’ll be taking on a recurring role as Morgan Tookers!
Barinholtz’s character description goes on to say that Morgan is a rehabbed ex-con, who lives with his best friend — his 80-year-old grandmother!
LOLz! Sounds like the show is really shaping up to be our new fave comedy!!
Be sure to tune into The Mindy Project when it premieres September 25 on FOX!
