TV fans already know Anna Camp from her turns on HBO’s “True Blood” and CBS’ “The Good Wife,” but this fall she’s testing out her comedy chops as Mindy Kaling’s level-headed BFF on FOX’s “The Mindy Project.”
The show, which premieres Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 9:30 p.m. ET, features Camp as the perfectly coiffed, married gal who seems to have it all together, which should provide for a funny foil to Kaling’s lovelorn Mindy.
Camp is also part of Zap2it’s new batch of Ones to Watch this fall. We asked her about everything from which celeb she’d switch teams for to which “Breakfast Club” character she would’ve been pals with in high school (paging Molly Ringwald!).
Check out her responses below, and catch her on “The Mindy Project.”
What’s the most embarrassing song is on your iPod?
“This Is Ponderous” by 2nu, the weirdest song ever written.

I fear a zombie apocalypse (bath salts, anyone?) but would much rather have an alien invasion. Who knows? They might be nice and could teach us something.
