Current role: Morgan Tookers, The Mindy Project (NBC)

You should be watching The Mindy Project because Mindy Kaling is awesome, and Chris Messina (whom you probably know best as the sometimes evil ACN News president from The Newsroom) is great as well, but the breakout award goes to Ike Barinholtz as Morgan the male nurse. By that description alone, of course he must be the oddball of the ensemble, but Barinholtz does the character so well that he made Morgan into a necessity rather than a small-dose goof. Any time a role envisioned as recurring graduates to a supporting cast member, props must be paid.
