From a man of the people to a man of the cloth!

Stephen Colbert, who's got a little time to kill before taking over The Late Show on Sept. 8, has booked a gig on The Mindy Project.

Star Mindy Kaling Tweeted a photo of her and Colbert, whose sporting a pretty sweet beard.

"Coming soon to #themindyproject: Father Michael O'Donnell," she wrote.

Kaling's pretty shrewd at casting zeitgeist-cracking celebrities, bless her heart. Earlier this month, she used social media to announced that Kris Jenner will make an appearance on her Fox show, as well.

Colbert signed off from The Colbert Report on Comedy Central Dec. 18. He's replacing David Letterman, who will step down from The Late Show on May 20.

The Mindy Project airs Tuesdays (9:30 p.m. ET) on Fox.
