Breaking Bad‘s Anna Gunn to Guest Star on The Mindy Project
4:41 pm, November 4th | by Colette McIntyre
While many Breaking Bad fans would have you believe that Skyler White is History’s Greatest Monster, I have always had a soft spot for Heisenberg’s put-upon wife/reluctant accomplice, probably because I’m not a misogynistic manchild with a god complex. (Sorry, I was #BornThisWay.) Every Sunday for five years, Anna Gunn delivered a virtuosic performance as a strong, ill-treated woman, the voice of morality in a dark, dark world, but now that the last Los Pollos Hermanos chicken has been consumed, the Emmy-winning actress is moving on to a completely different role: that of Dr. Mindy Lahiri’s professional crush.
That’s right — our favorite New York Times contributor will guest star on Fox’s The Mindy Project. Gunn will play Sheila Hamilton, a high-profile doctor who Mindy Kaling’s character calls “the Tory Burch of Manhattan OB/GYNS.” The sophisticated Dr. Hamilton is Mindy’s role model and evidently the admiration is mutual — Hamilton shows up at Shulman & Associates for the express purpose of poaching Mindy from the practice.
Can the powerful and glamorous Dr. Hamilton successfully woo Mindy with her life of rich and famous reproductive organs? Find out during the series’ 13th episode.
