Anna Gunn to visit 'Mindy Project'
Doctor L’s about to face off with Skyler White.
Anna Gunn is heading back to the small screen with a guest stint on The Mindy Project, EW has confirmed. Gunn will appear on the comedy as Sheila Hamilton, a high-profile New York doctor with A-list clientele — “the Tory Burch of Manhattan OB/GYNs,” according to Mindy Lahiri (Mindy Kaling). In the episode, Sheila intends to poach Mindy from her current office. Though Mindy’s pleased to have a fan at first, she grows wary of Sheila’s attention.
And Gunn’s no stranger to comedy — she once guested on Seinfeld long before she starred as Walter White’s tormented wife. Plus, the actress said she’d be up for tackling a comedic role after years of playing a woman under the thumb of a drug kingpin.
“It would be a lot of fun to play some comedy,” Gunn recently told EW. “I’m looking at just some really interesting different character roles that would be a complete 180 from Skyler that would allow me to really stretch and show my range and show colors and things that I haven’t been able to in the past few years.”
Looks like she got her wish. The Mindy Project airs Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m. ET on Fox.
