Exsqueeze us while we freak out — Stephen Colbert will guest star on ‘The Mindy Project’! We couldn’t be more excited for the funny man to join Mindy and the crazy ensemble in season three — find out about his role here!
In his first role post-Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert, 50, will be gracing your TV’s with his hot new beard and snappy bits! The Mindy Project‘s star and creator, Mindy Kaling, 35, announced that Stephen will be guest starring on FOX’s hit show by sharing a photo of them together on set. So exciting!
‘The Mindy Project’: Stephen Colbert To Guest Star On Hit Show
Mindy tweeted a photo of her and Stephen — sorry, we mean Father Michael O’Donnell — in a church, with their arms wrapped around each other.

We never expected Stephen to play such a convincing priest! We can pretty much guarantee he’ll be making us LOL in no time.
Unfortunately, no other details were revealed about his guest appearance on the show. But from what we know, Mindy’s boyfriend on the show, Danny (Chris Messina), comes from a very Catholic family, so maybe he’s Danny’s family’s priest? We can’t help but wonder how he’ll feel about certain things, like Mindy’s little one on the way!
Either way, we’re so excited to see Stephen in this role, even if it is short-lived due to his upcoming takeover of the Late Show in the fall.
The Mindy Project has had a whole bunch of famous guest stars on the show, including James Franco, Common, Kendra Wilkinson, Julia Stiles, and more! Stephen is just another fabulous one to add to the list.
