Holy Schmidt! New Girl's Max Greenfield to Guest-Star on The Mindy Project

Max Greenfield The Mindy ProjectThe Schmidt’s about to hit the fan on The Mindy Project.

New Girl scene-stealer Max Greenfield will guest star in an episode of The Mindy Project later this season, TVLine has confirmed.

Despite what my cheeky headline and lede implies, Greenfield will not be playing Schmidt. He will portray Lee, a hot player at a bar who is up to no good. (Hmm… sounds like Schmidt to me.)

The Mindy Project returns with new episodes on April 1; Greenfield’s guest appearance is tentatively slated to air April 22.
