Niecy Nash is one of the hardest working actresses in Hollywood. The extremely funny and very talented star of The Soul Man  has secured another TV gig.

According to EW,  Nash has been added to the third season of the hugely popular FOX comedy series, The Mindy Project.  She will have a reoccurring role as Dr. Jean Fishman, the “work nemesis” of the show’s central character, Mindy and the new chief of Shulman & Associates’ admitting hospital.  Dr. Fishman is also being described as “a take-no-prisoners type” who just so happens to be a lesbian.

Look for Nash to appear as Richie Jean Jackson in Ava DuVernay’s Selma  later on this year.

Stay tuned…
