'Scandal' creator Shonda Rhimes to cameo on 'The Mindy Project'

Shonda Rhimes is heading to The Mindy Project.

The Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal creator, who is a big fan of the Fox comedy, will make her acting debut when she makes a cameo as herself in an upcoming season 3 episode. Details on her appearance, first reported by TVLine.com, are being kept under wraps.

The Mindy Project returns Sept. 16 at 9:30 p.m. ET on Fox.

Niecy Nash joins 'The Mindy Project'

Is there such a thing as too many funny people on one show? Well, we’re about to find out when Niecy Nash brings her talents to The Mindy Project.

EW has confirmed that Nash will join the show’s third season in a recurring role as Dr. Jean Fishman, a rival of Mindy’s—or as Mindy Kaling tweeted, her “work nemesis“—and the new chief of Shulman & Associates’ admitting hospital. TVLine, which first reported the news, described Fishman as “a take-no-prisoners type” who “also happens to be a lesbian.” And considering we know that Mindy kisses a girl this season, could Nash’s introduction be related?

We’ll find out when The Mindy Project returns for its third season on Tuesday, Sept. 16 at 9:30 p.m. ET on Fox.

Can you tease how Amelia will fit in on Grey’s Anatomy next season? — Carla
How she’ll fit into Grey Sloan will all depend on whether or not Derek takes the D.C. job, which causes some “frustrating complications,” executive producer Shonda Rhimes tells me. But Amelia will make a surprising connection at the hospital, just not with who you’d think. “There’s a moment early on when she finds herself the keeper of some secrets that Richard didn’t necessarily want her to know by being at an AA meeting that he didn’t know she was at,” Rhimes says. “It draws her into the world in a deeper way than she anticipated.” Hmm, I wonder what that secret could be.

'The Mindy Project': Inside the breakup scene that left you in shambles -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS

Chances are you’re still not over last week’s Mindy Project breakup, and we can’t blame you. But the good news? Mindy (Mindy Kaling) and Danny (Chris Messina) might be done for now, but they’re not done forever.

“I think the dynamic between them is special and different and they are unlike any other couple on TV because they are such distinct characters and they fight so much,” says Ike Barinholtz, who plays lovable nurse Morgan on the show and co-wrote the big breakup episode. “To put them back together just makes so much sense…eventually.”

Below, Barinholtz talks more about writing the scene that ripped your soul apart, and we give you an exclusive look at the original script, annotated (hilariously) by Kaling, Barinholtz, and episode co-writer David Stassen.

'The Mindy Project': Ike Barinholtz calls tonight's show 'our most R-rated episode to date' -- LISTEN!

The Mindy Project is back tonight with an hour-long episode (Fox at 9 p.m. ET) that finds Mindy (Mindy Kaling) not only dealing with the aftermath of her kiss with Danny (Chris Messina) and the start of a possible new relationship, but also with an incriminating video of herself that has surfaced on the Internet.

Phoning in to Entertainment Weekly Radio’s EW Morning Live, co-star Ike Barinholtz, who pitched the initial idea that led to the video story line, teased the tape thusly: “The worst possible tape you could make is one with Bill Hader, I think, because his character on our show is a subhuman degenerate.” He also told hosts Dalton Ross and Jessica Shaw that the hour is “our most R-rated episode to date.” Listen below.

Mindy Kaling talks using tongue with Chris Messina, where Danny and Mindy's relationship could go next -- LISTEN

Using tongue isn’t something trained actors are encouraged to do, but as Mindy Kaling joked when she stopped by EW Morning Live on Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM 105), she and her Mindy Project co-star Chris Messina are Method — “or we’re just perverts or whatever.” She breaks down Mindy and Danny’s cliffhanger airplane kiss in the interview excerpt below (Messina grabbing her butt was not scripted).

Asked if the characters join the Mile High Club, Kaling teased, “The attempt is made. I won’t say if it’s successful or not successful. I will say that it’s funny. And kind of hot, in its own way.”

She goes on to explain all the different ways the show, which returns with a one-hour spring premiere April 1 at 9 p.m. ET on Fox, could go with the duo in its third season this fall. Have a listen. And yes, we would totally watch them shopping at Costco. READ FULL STORY

'The Mindy Project' at PaleyFest: 6 things we learned about that kiss, that dance, and more

The Mindy Project is back next week! I repeat: The Mindy Project is back next week!

We’ve been patiently waiting for our Shulman & Associates fix since January, but enough is enough. After the midseason finale fireworks — as Mindy flew back to New York to get Cliff back, Danny grabbed her for a passionate mile-high make-out sesh — it’s a wonder we haven’t combusted from the anticipation. To help you hold out one more week, the Mindy cast hit PaleyFest at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre on Tuesday night for a revealing and laugh-filled panel.

Fox renews 'Mindy Project,' 'The Following,' more

Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Mindy Project, and New Girl have all been renewed for new seasons, Fox announced Friday.

The network’s pickup of freshman comedy Brooklyn comes as no surprise, considering the Andy Samberg vehicle took a top prize at the Golden Globes in January, and both Mindy and New Girl, going into their third and fourth seasons respectively, were considered safe bets for renewal.

Fox has also renewed The Following, which will return for a third season.

“These shows are some of the best and acclaimed series on television, with influential, culture-driving stars, and some of the best, most creative talent behind the camera,” said bosses Kevin Reilly and Joe Earley in a joint statement. “All four are core assets within our 2014-15 portfolio of content, and we’re really happy to bring them back to our FOX fans for another season.”

The news comes a little over a month after Fox announced the renewal of Bones for a tenth season. Sleepy Hollow and Glee are also set to return, with the latter going into its sixth and final season.

The fates of drama Almost Human and comedies Dads, Raising Hope, and Enlisted remain undecided. For more on their odds, check out EW’s annual TV Death Watch.
