Anna Gunn to star on ‘The Mindy Project’

Breaking Bad actress Anna Gunn will return to the small screen with a stint on The Mindy Project.

For her guest role, Anna will play Sheila Hamilton, an A-list New York City doctor (and, according to Mindy, “the Tory Burch of Manhattan OB/GYNs") who tries to poach the doctor away from her practice.

After playing the tormented wife of a meth kingpin for the past six years, Anna says she’s ready for some lighter fare.

“It would be a lot of fun to play some comedy,” she recently revealed. “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.”

Anna is set to appear in this season’s 13th episode, which will likely air sometime in January.
