Jenna Elfman Heads Over to 'The Mindy Project'


Jenna Elfman

'The Mindy Project' is about to get its very own version of Olivia Pope. According to Vulture, Jenna Elfman is scheduled to make a guest appearance on the FOX hit show later this season as a 'Scandal'-esque crisis-management publicist who "sexually dominates" Dr. Danny Castellano. Okay, we're officially intrigued.

As 'Mindy' fans know, Danny's love life has been DOA ever since his break up with his ex Christina, whom he had problems with in the boudoir. So this little roll in the hay may just be exactly what the doctor ordered. After all, Mindy's not the only one at Schulman and Associates who deserves some lovin'.

Elfman is the latest in a long list of Hollywood stars to grace 'The Mindy Project' airwaves. James Franco, Adam Pally (though he may not count anymore since he's recently been bumped to series regular), Kris Humphries, Seth Meyers, Ed Helms, and Bill Hader have all earned guest spots on the show. And that's just naming a few. But hey, any reason to get this 'Dharma & Greg' alum back on the small screen is okay by us.

Elfman's latest TV projects include roles in 'Shameless,' 'Damages,' '1600 Penn,' and most recently 'Royal Pains.' Now it's time to see what Dr. Mindy Lahiri makes of her.

Are you excited for Elfman to join the series? 'The Mindy Project' airs Tuesdays at 9:30/8:30c on FOX.
