Snubbed for an Emmy for her work on Fargo, Allison Tolman will guest-star on The Mindy Project for two episodes as romance novelist Abby Berman. She'll be going on a blind date with manic man-child gynecologist Peter Prentice (Happy Endings alum Adam Pally), who promises to be a terrible companion. In addition to Tolman, the third season's packed guest list includes Shonda Rhimes (as herself, naturally) and Cheers' Rhea Perlman as Danny Castellano's mom. The season premieres on Tuesday, September 16.
