Entertainment Weekly has a new interview with Garret with some details about his character in The Mindy Project:
The Hand of God star heads to Schulman & Associates as doctor Jody Kimball, Mindy’s (Mindy Kaling) temporary replacement.
“He’s a bit racist, a bit sexist, a bit old-fashioned,” Dillahunt told EW Thursday night at Amazon Studios’ Hollywood premiere of Hand of God. “So we butt heads coming on.”
Dillahunt started filming with the Mindy gang on Monday, and though he’s no stranger to streaming service series, the actor definitely felt he was flexing a different muscle when it came to straying from the Amazon drama. “I think it’s necessary,” Dillahunt said of trying out a different genre. “It should be a requirement. I thought that’s what we always do. I’ve been lucky enough to get the opportunity.”
Hulu has announced the release date for the new season of The Mindy Project. The season will premiere on Thursday, September 15. That’s 11 days after Hand of God (Sept. 4, Amazon).
The entire first season will be available a month from now, on September 4, on Amazon Prime.
In Amazon’s new series Hand of God – first season available September 4th in the U.S., UK, Austria, and Germany on Amazon Prime – Sons of Anarchy’s Ron Perlman plays a morally corrupt judge who suffers a breakdown and believes that God is speaking directly to him, compelling him onto a path of vigilante justice.
One of the next stops anyway.
Meet Dr. Mindy Lahiri’s (temporary) replacement.
After two back-to-back drama turns post-Raising Hope, Garret Dillahunt is returning to comedy with a major recurring role on the upcoming fourth season of The Mindy Project at its new home, Hulu.
He will play Jody, a new doctor who replaces Mindy while she goes on maternity leave. Jody is a charming southern gentleman with extremely traditional values who thinks that Mindy is a tacky idiot.
The show was picked up for a 26-episode season in May and went back into production today. Hulu hasn’t announced a release date yet.
Deadline has some details about Rounding Third, the film Garret is currently filming, and his next project, called Come and Find Me.
Rounding Third is an adaptation of Richard Dresser’s 2002 play (synopsis) and Garret plays Michael, the assistant coach. From Deadline:
[John C.] McGinley stars in Rounding Third as the win-at-all-costs coach of a kids baseball team on which his son plays. Dillahunt will play the new assistant coach. The coaches butt heads as they scrap through a season despite different personal circumstances and philosophies about the game and how to motivate their team. Robert Deaton and George Flanigen are directing for producer Fred Roos.
Come and Find Me, which starts shooting in Vancouver later this month, is a 2012 Black List script written by Zack Whedon, who will also direct it. Some more info:
Come And Find Me, from writer-director Zack Whedon, stars [Aaron] Paul as David, who must track down his missing girlfriend (Annabelle Wallis) after he realizes she’s not who she was pretending to be. Dillahunt plays the girlfriend’s former handler with the government who attempts to give David incriminating evidence that the woman was holding against him.
