Kris Humphries


The Boston Celtics power forward will guest star as himself in an upcoming episode of the Mindy Kaling-starring series' second season.

Kris Humphries has signed up for "The Mindy Project". TV Guide learns that the 28-year-old NBA star has landed a guest-starring role on the FOX sitcom, playing himself in an upcoming episode of the show's sophomore season.

Humphries joins James Franco and Adam Pally ("Happy Endings"), who have been previously announced to guest star on the Mindy Kaling starrer. It will mark his first scripted series gig after previously appearing on reality series "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" and "Kourtney and Kim Take New York" with her then wife Kim Kardashian.

"The Mindy Project" will return with its second season starting Tuesday, September 17 at 9:30 P.M. on FOX. The show enlists Franco to play Dr. Paul Leotard, "a charismatic and popular doctor who replaces Mindy while she is in Haiti on a volunteer mission with her pastor boyfriend."

"A former professional fashion model, Dr. Leotard radically altered his career goals after he accidentally walked off a runway at fashion week and was saved by a pregnant woman. From that day forward, he devoted himself to helping pregnant women and immediately applied to medical school," a press release read.
