Niecy Nash has just joined The Mindy Project and her role is so amazing, that we can't believe it's actually real. But it is!

E! News has confirmed that the Reno 911! and Getting On comedy goddess will play Mindy Lahiri's nemesis this season. And here's the best part: She's a lesbian.

Nash will play recurring character Dr. Jean Fishman, who is the new chief of Shulman & Associates' admitting hospital. She is described as a tough physician from Boston who is a take-no-prisoners type and puts up with no nonsense whatsoever.

TVLine first reported this casting.
