Stephen Colbert will be joining the cast of The Mindy Project in an an upcoming guest spot.
According to Rolling Stone, Producers have not said when Colbert’s guest appearance would air or how long his character’s arc would last.
Variety speculates that, given his upcoming Late Show duties, Colbert’s Mindy Project stint is likely a short one. Kaling also posted a photo of Colbert in costume with a priest’s robe and collar and a full salt-and-pepper beard. Colbert began cultivating the scruffy facial hair after The Colbert Report ended, because as he told E! News, “I was curious what I actually looked like and it turns out it’s this.”
