WorkaholicsAnders Holm is joining Fox‘s comedy series The Mindy Project as a new love interest for Mindy (Mindy Kaling). In a four-episode arc, Holm will play Casey, a charismatic, altruistic, and popular Lutheran pastor in New York City who is so cool he has a DJ at his church services. When Casey and Mindy first meet, he manages to both attract her and get under her skin at the same time — soon after, they begin dating. Holm’s first episode airs in early April. 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.

Popular Latin American actor Manolo Cardona has been cast in a multi-episode recurring guest arc on USA‘s spy drama Covert Affairs starring Piper Perabo. The Colombian-born Cardona will play Teo Braga, an enigmatic Colombian rebel leader. Brilliant and brooding, Teo harbors secrets about his past that will affect Annie (Perabo), Auggie and other members of the CIA profoundly. The stint reunites Cardona, repped by D2 Management, with Perabo — they co-starred in Beverly Hills Chihuahua. It also expands Cardona’s relationship with USA and Covert Affairs producers Universal Cable Prods. and Hypnotic which also recently cast him in the untitled Cheryl Heuton and Nicolas Falacci pilot.
