"The Mindy Project" Lands Joseph Gordon-Levitt For Season 4
And the episode pays homage to Sliding Doors.
The Mindy Project has a knack for casting some of Hollywood's most in-demand leading men — James Franco, Lee Pace, Seth Rogen, Stephen Colbert, Hannibal Buress, Seth Meyers, Timothy Olyphant, and John Cho, to name a few — and that will still be true in the show's upcoming fourth season, its first on Hulu.
BuzzFeed News can exclusively reveal that Joseph Gordon-Levitt will guest star in the Season 4 premiere, which is inspired by the 1998 romantic comedy Sliding Doors. In the alternate-reality version of Mindy Lahiri's (Kaling) life, she is no longer with Danny Castellano (Chris Messina), but married to Matt (Gordon-Levitt), a suave reality show producer for Bravo — aka the ideal profession for Mindy's man.
It's also a reunion of sorts for Gordon-Levitt and The Mindy Project cast — Kaling and Messina guest-starred in the Season 2 premiere of his crowd-sourced Pivot series, Hit Record.
