'The Mindy Project' Plans An 'Office' Christmas Party for Ellie Kemper


With 'The Office' coming to a close this year and practically hemorrhaging cast members, former castmate-turned 'The Mindy Project' star Mindy Kaling is in prime position to scoop them up.  Not only does series boast occasional appearances from 'Office' vet Ed Helms, but now Helms' on-screen love and fellow 'Office' star Ellie Kemper will pay a visit as well!  Guesting in the series' Christmas episode, who might the 'Bridesmaids' star play when 'The Mindy Project holds an office party?

Fans of 'The Office' and the NBC series' web spin-off "Subtle Sexuality," your Christmas has come early.  According to TVLine, 'The Office's Ellie Kemper is the latest Dunder-Mifflin vet to guest on Mindy Kaling's freshman FOX comedy 'The Mindy Project,' appearing in the December 11 Christmas episode "Josh and Mindy's Christmas party."

It isn't yet known who Kemper will end up playing, but photos from the episode suggest that the character arrives at Mindy and Josh (Tommy Dewey)'s holiday party to a somewhat uncomfortable reception.  Kemper is the second major 'Office' star to drop by former writer, star and executive producer Kaling's FOX series, including Ed Helms.

You can take a look at Kemper's appearance on 'The Mindy Project' in the photos below, and give us your predictions who she might play in the comments!
