Fox has announced that The Mindy Project season 2 will welcome James Franco for the first two episodes.
According to a press release, Franco will play Dr. Paul Leotard, “the charismatic and popular doctor who replaces Mindy (Mindy Kaling) at Shulman & Associates while she is in Haiti on a volunteer mission. A former professional fashion model, Dr. Leotard radically altered his career goals after he accidentally walked off a runway at fashion week and was saved by a pregnant woman. From that day forward, he devoted himself to helping pregnant women and immediately applied to medical school.”
The Mindy Project season 2 premieres Tuesday, Sept. 17 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT). The second episode – again with Franco – airs Tuesday, Sept. 24 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT).
The show stars Mindy Kaling in the titular role. Franco and Kaling appeared together in the apocalypse comedy This Is The End which hit theaters last month.
