Adam Pally as Dr. Peter Prentiss on The Mindy Project

Meet The Mindy Project MD Who Will "Give You a Pap Smear, Then a High Five"

Adam Pally is joining the cast of The Mindy Project! He'll kick off his run on the third episode of season two, and in a recent visit to POPSUGAR Live!, he shared new details about his character.

Mindy Kaling's own Dr. Lahiri works in a Manhattan ob-gyn office along with Ed Weeks's Dr. Reed and Chris Messina's Dr. Castellano, and it looks like Adam's Dr. Peter Prentiss will only up the testosterone levels. "He’s a bit of a frat boy doctor," Adam said of Peter. "They describe him as the type of doctor that will give you a Pap smear and then offer you a high five, which is both funny and gross."

Watch the whole interview with Adam:

James Franco led the guest star charge on The Mindy Project this season, playing another memorable MD in Dr. Paul Leotard. Sadly, James's very quotable character was only around for two episodes and wrapped his run last night. But nonetheless, Adam's happy to have his doc compared to Franco's. Adam said, "I don’t care how [the two characters] compare, as long as people say my name in the same sentence as James Franco's!"

We'll get to see Adam's hilarity ensue when his first outing as Dr. Prentiss airs next Tuesday, Oct. 1, on Fox.
