Matthews making cameo in ‘The Mindy Project’

Apparently, the producers of FOX’s comedy “The Mindy Project” saw the amusing Fathead commercial that Packers linebacker Clay Matthews starred in.

That could be the best explanation for why Matthews is set to make a cameo Tuesday night alongside former “The Office” actress, Mindy Kaling, on her new show.

The episode, titled “Sante Fe,” airs at 8:30 p.m. CT.

Set your DVRs now, Packers fans. Perhaps Matthews will once again grace the screen with his TV-14-style, hip-gyrating post-sack dance.
