Stephen Colbert to Guest-Star on 'The Mindy Project'
Stephen Colbert has booked another TV gig.
The former Colbert Report host will guest-star on Fox's The Mindy Project. Creator and star Mindy Kaling tweeted the news, which The Hollywood Reporter confirmed.
Colbert will play a priest, Father Michael O'Donnell, in an upcoming episode. An air date has not yet been set.
Colbert signed off from The Colbert Report in December, in preparation for taking over CBS' The Late Show from David Letterman. The talk show is scheduled to air on Sept. 8.
