Late-night fixture Stephen Colbert has a new TV gig lined up. The former “Colbert Report” host, who is in transition before succeeding David Letterman on CBS’s “Late Show” in September, booked a guest spot on Fox’s “The Mindy Project,” the Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed blog reports.
“Colbert will play a priest, Father Michael O’Donnell, in an upcoming episode. An air date has not yet been set,” THR reports, noting that the show’s star, Mindy Kaling, originally tweeted the news.
Colbert signed off from his Comedy Central show in December.
