FOX Casts JoAnna Garcia Swisher as Guest Star on 'The Mindy Project'


JoAnna Garcia Swisher as Ariel in Once Upon a Time

JoAnna Garcia Swisher is trading in her Neverland tail for a pair of Big Apple legs on 'The Mindy Project.' TVLine reports that FOX has nabbed the actress to guest star on the popular sophomore comedy, where she will play the sister of new series regular Adam Pally‘s Dr. Peter Prentice!

And while this part is still being considered a rather short-lived role, sources say the visit could potentially spill over into a second episode. So, there's no telling what this dynamic sibling duo will be up to amid the bright lights of Manhattan. No word yet on when exactly the episode(s) will air.

But the network won't be able to keep her on for too long given the star's already busy schedule. Swisher recently made a quite the splash playing a rather familiar little mermaid, Ariel, in two episodes of 'Once Upon a Time,' with a third appearance still to come. (Though we're hoping she'll eventually take up a permanent residency in Storybrooke with the handsome Prince Eric!)

Other notable TV credits include turns on 'Reba,' 'Privileged,' and 'Gossip Girl.' Just look at all this stuff! (Isn't it neat?)

Are you excited about Swisher's upcoming FOX appearance? Will she be just as hilarious as Peter? Hit the comments below and divulge your thoughts!

'The Mindy Project' airs on Tuesdays at 9:30/8:30c on FOX.

I don't care for The Mindy Project, but I love Joanna Garcia. She has the most beautiful smile on tv. I really hope she will become a regular on Once Upon a Time as well. She's just so cute as Ariel!
