The Mindy Project‘s midseason revamp continues.
Fox’s rookie comedy has tapped Upright Citizens Brigade vet Mary Grill to join the cast in a recurring role, TVLine has learned.
Grill will play Maggie, Mindy’s tomboyish, confident, party girl friend from college who is often assumed to be a lesbian (when in reality she slays guys left and right). Maggie and Mindy reconnect when the former moves into the latter’s apartment building.
Grill’s hiring comes as The Mindy Project undergoes a slight Season 1 course correction that has led to the departures of supporting players Amanda Setton and Stephen Tobolowsky and a series regular-to-recurring downgrade for Kaling’s current onscreen BFF, the underused Anna Camp.Follow @MichaelAusiello
