The Mindy Project Scoop: Chloe Sevigny Joins Cast as [Spoiler]'s Ex-Wife!

chloeThe Mindy Project isn’t done generating headlines today.

On the heels of its second-season renewal, Fox’s rapidly-improving rookie comedy has tapped Chloe Sevigny to join the cast for multiple episodes as the ex-wife of Chris Messina’s Danny, TVLine has learned.

The Big Love vet’s character, Christina, is described as a well-traveled war photographer who’s been with some intimidating men in exotic locales, a fact which makes Danny insecure. She’s looking forward to a romantic dinner with Danny and is disappointed when something suddenly comes up.

Sevigny, who is coming off of guest stints on Portlandia and American Horror Story: Asylum, is on board for at least three episodes (the first of which will air in April).

  2. Steve F. says:

    Well, this part sure has legs…

    What, too soon?

  3. FRNG says:

    Can’t wait to see how she does comedy. Loved her on the 2nd season of AHS

  4. Jay says:

    I’ve always been a little curious as to why Danny’s so messed up. This might explain it.

  5. Rosalerfhan says:

    Exciting! Curious as how Sevigny in comedy is

  6. Lisa says:

    really glad she wont be back on ahs this year. she played shelley perfectly but i’m not a fan of her

  7. S. from E. now says:

    I am so excited about this! Simply love her (=

  8. Kaycee says:

    I’m so happy for Chloe! She’s venturing into comedy and she’s great at it, loved her in Portlandia!
    She’s an amazing actress.
    Any word on how her pilot is doing? ‘Those Who Kill’
    hope it gets picked up!

  9. Pepper says:

    Oh, no.

  10. Katie says:

    Excellent. I was wondering when we’d see the fallout from Morgan sending that letter…

  11. Nancy says:

    Oooh should be good.

  12. dude says:

    She needs to stop being cast in things.

  13. Ruby says:

    This is great news, I am a huge fan of hers. To anyone wondering if she can do comedy, she was hilarious on Big Love, so yes, she totally can. She’s so underrated.

    Who comes up with these dumb ideas? Sorry, don’t care for her…..not even her looks……inappropriate choice IMHO.

    • Lindsey says:

      I was just thinking that I can’t see him marrying her. Character-wise, maybe, but definitely not lookswise. The picture in this article is the best I’ve ever seen her look.

    • Sara says:

      Agreed. We’ll see how she plays the role but in my head, I imagine a sort of perky blonde for Danny’s ex, not someoe who looks like her. Just different in my head.

  15. Maris says:

    I haven’t seen her work but she kinda looks like Zooey Deschanel
