Next stop: The Mindy Project

One of the next stops anyway.

From Deadline:

The Mindy ProjectMeet 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.
