‘The Mindy Project’ Is ‘MAD’-ly in ‘Glee’ Over Its Three New Cast Members
Entertainment Weekly reports the addition of three actors to the lineup: ‘Gossip Girl’ vet Amanda Setton, character actor Stephen Tobolowsky (you may know him from ‘Glee’) and, in a recurring role, Ike Barinholtz, who’s been on ‘MADtv’ and is also a ‘Mindy Project’ executive story editor.
Setton will play Shauna Dicanio, described as “the tenacious, Jersey-born office manager of [Mindy's medical practice]; a woman who collects unpaid patient bills like she’s a bounty hunter,” while Tobolowsky will take on the role of Dr. Marc Shulman, the head of Mindy’s practice who’s “always excited to wax philosophical, especially if his advice gets the younger staff to leave him alone.”
Meanwhile, Barinholtz plays Morgan Tookers, an ex-con who’s hired as a male nurse at Mindy’s medical practice despite “an apparent lack of tact, hygiene, or formal qualifications.”
Sounds like the makings of a fantastic ensemble, and with Kaling at the helm, it almost can’t miss. Check out ‘The Mindy Project’ when it debuts Tuesday, September 25 on Fox.
