Looks like Mindy Kaling and James Franco enjoyed working together on This Is the End, because Fox has announced that Franco will guest star on The Mindy Project! While the show has had its share of guest stars already (including frequent Franco costar Seth Rogen), Franco's character is poised to take the cake. In the season two premiere and following episode, he'll play Dr. Paul Leotard, a "charismatic and popular doctor" who replaces Mindy at the practice while she's away in Haiti. According to the press release, Paul is a former model who fell off the runway, was saved by a pregnant woman, and decided to change his career. I've been looking forward to The Mindy Project's season two premiere since the first season ended, but now I'm positively stoked. Who else is excited to meet Dr. Leotard?
