Raising Hope star Garret Dillahunt is joining THE MINDY PROJECT. The role marks a return to his comedic roots, as he is coming off a turn as a villain in FX’s Justified. Dillahunt will play a doctor who replaces Mindy Kaling’s character when she goes on maternity leave.
His character, Jody, is being described as a Southern gentleman with extremely traditional values who looks down on Mindy’s loud and brash ways. The Mindy Project, originally on Fox, will start its fourth season on Hulu.
Dillahunt can also be seen starring opposite Ron Perlman and Dana Delaney in Amazon’s new drama Hand Of God. He also stars in Zack Whedon’s thriller Come And Find Me with Aaron Paul and Annabelle Wallis.
