Workaholics‘ Anders Holm is joining Fox‘s comedy series The Mindy Project as a new love interest for Mindy (Mindy Kaling).

Holm, repped by Avalon, UTA and attorney Jeffrey Endlich, is one of the stars/writers/producers behind Comedy Central’s hit Workaholics, now in its third season and recently renewed for seasons 4 and 5.
