According to EW, "Gossip Girl" alum Amanda Setton will play Mindy's office manager Shauna Dicanio. Described as "Jersey-born and tenacious," her character makes a hobby out of collecting unpaid patient bills. "Glee" actor Stephen Tobolowsky will join "The Mindy Project" as a series regular in the role of Dr. Marc Shulman, the head of Mindy's practice.

Meanwhile, MADtv's Ike Barinholtz has landed a recurring role on the series as a male nurse at Mindy's practice who also happens to be an ex-con.

"The Mindy Project," also starring Mindy Kaling, Anna Camp and Chris Messina, centers on a Bridget Jones-esque physician (Kaling) struggling to find love in the midst of a crazy professional life. "The Mindy Project" is set to debut this fall on Fox.
