Anna Gunn is trading in a meth empire for scrubs and will guest star on "The Mindy Project," E! Online reports. She'll be playing Mindy's (Mindy Kaling) hero, Sheila Hamilton, a New York OB/GYN who tries to woo her from her current residency at Shulman & Associates.
Gunn, who recently won an Emmy for her role as Skyler White on the AMC series "Breaking Bad," will appear in the 13th episode this season. It will be her first acting gig since the show's finale, and viewers can safely assume her time on "The Mindy Project" will be less dramatic than her role on "Breaking Bad."
Since beginning its second season back in September, "The Mindy Project" has already welcomed a number of guest stars such as James Franco, Adam Pally (the "Happy Endings" star has since become a series regular) and Timothy Olyphant. However, after Gunn's role in one of the most talked about shows in recent television history, and on the heels of her Emmy win, this is a coup for "The Mindy Project."
"The Mindy Project" airs Tues. at 9:30 p.m. EST on Fox.
