Joseph Gordon-Levitt to Play Mindy Lahiri’s Husband on The Mindy Project‘s Fourth Season Premiere

Say what?


So, okay. The Mindy Project has been one hell of a rollercoaster. First it was cancelled, then we found out it’s coming back to Hulu, and now we find out that they’ve snagged Joseph Gordon freakin’ Levitt for the fourth season premiere? Okay.

BuzzFeed reports that Gordon-Levitt will be guest starring in the season four premiere as Mindy’s husband, Matt. It’s supposed to be an homage to the 1998 comedy Sliding Doors, where she’s living in an alternate universe where she didn’t marry her current show husband, Danny.

Yeah, that’s a lot of in-universe stuff that might not make a whole lot of sense if you haven’t seen the show. But can you just imagine how adorable Mindy Kaling and Gordon-Levitt would be as a couple? D’aw. If this isn’t one big (500) Days of Summer parody…

Prep your headcanons. The Mindy Project is coming later this year.
