Unlike most male guest stars of the show, Franco will not be playing a potential love interest for Mindy Lahiri (Mindy Kaling). After Mindy made the decision to follow her boyfriend Pastor Casey (Anders Holm) to Haiti in the season one finale, her colleagues had to find a replacement for her at Shulman & Associates.
Franco will play Dr. Paul Leotard, who is being described as a charismatic and popular doctor who serves as Mindy’s replacement. The character will be a former fashion model with a funny back story.
“The Mindy Project” returns to fox on September 17 at 9pm. Are you excited to see Franco on the show?
