Gentlemen, lock up your ladies. Schmidt's on the move!
Max Greenfield—a k a New Girl's resident ladykiller/tiny nipple man—has signed on to guest star on The Mindy Project, E! News has learned.
He'll play Lee, a hot player at a bar who is up to no good, in an episode that is tentatively set for April 22 on Fox. The Mindy Project returns April 1: You have the date circled in puffy paint, yes? With glitter? Good.
Now, as long as the aforementioned "no good" doesn't mean Max's character will be coming between Mindy (Mindy Kaling) and Danny (Chris Messina), we give this casting an A++. Not only will this episode with Greenfield air right after New Girl, and hopefully lure some of that audience over to Mindy's charms, but the fan-favorite actor also will be seen in March as Deputy Leo in the Veronica Mars movie, which clearly has a wee-bit-dedicated fanbase. Once again, Mindy Kaling proves she's the smartest girl in the room.
