It looks like Adam Pally is going to have a happy ending after all.
Just a few months after his show "Happy Endings" was canceled by ABC, the actor has found a new full-time gig as a series regular on Fox's "The Mindy Project."
Pally, who will play an OB-GYN on the sitcom, told CBSNews.com his character is "kind of a frat boy," adding, "He's the kind of person that will give you a pap smear and then offer you a high-five."
The show's star and creator, Mindy Kaling, expressed her happiness over the casting:
My affection for Adam Pally is not proportional to the time we have spent together, but now we gonna spend a lotta time together. yay-- Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) September 19, 2013
"It's nice when people think that you're good. And I feel like I still had a lot of stuff to learn in television," Pally said about the TV role.
Pally won't be the only new face at the Shulman & Associates office this season. Several guest stars are set to appear, including Kris Humphries, Timothy Olyphant and "Mad Men" actor Ben Feldman. James Franco graced us with his presence last week and will return as Paul Leotard (or "The Other Dr. L") in tonight's episode (Sept. 24), when he'll have continuing run-ins with Dr. Mindy Lahiri.
The 31-year-old actor/comedian will begin appearing on "The Mindy Project" starting Oct. 1. But before he graces the small screen again, Pally is teaming up with Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop to help get the word about National Coffee Day on Sept. 29.
"Since they're a Canadian company, they thought I'm the most American person they can think of -- a Jew from New York," Pally joked.
This coming Sunday, the company is hosting a buy 1, get 1 free special -- and by the sound of it, Pally may have a lot of coffee in his future.
When asked how he plans to celebrate National Coffee Day, Pally said, "I'm gonna get wasted...on liquor. And then when I need to sober up the next morning and go to work [on "The Mindy Project"], I'm gonna grab a cup of coffee."
And by the way, he likes his coffee black: "I've always liked it black. I like to taste the coffee. I like that it's a little bitter. That's the real wake-up."
