Creator and star Mindy Kaling broke the news to Us Weekly herself at the post-Emmy’s Governors Ball on Sunday (Sept. 22), saying, “[It’s a] funny little part and my friend Jeremy [Bronson] wrote [it.] A really funny script and she’s in it!”
Wilkinson joins a list of bold names that includes James Franco (who debuted as Dr. Paul Leotard in the Season 2 premiere), Adam Pally (originally set to recur, but recently made series regular) and Kim Kardashian’s ex, Kris Humphries, who will appear as himself. Unlike Humphries, the “Kendra on Top” star won’t be portraying herself on the comedy.
“She will be playing a character,” a source tells the magazine. “Mindy is a huge fan of Kendra’s and asked her to do one episode. Kendra is so excited!”
Are you looking forward to Wilkinson’s “Mindy Project” debut?
