The Mindy Project Season 2 Cast Timothy OlyphantPastor who?

The Season 2 dating roster for The Mindy Project‘s titular doc gets longer all the time — and now you can add Justified‘s Timothy Olyphant to the list.

Olyphant will play a professional skateboarder in his 40s who meets Mindy Kaling’s character when he nearly runs her over in New York’s Union Square, the Los Angeles Times reports. His episode will run early in the season.

Though Kaling’s rom-com-obsessed OB-GYN finished Season 1 preparing to travel to Haiti with boyfriend Pastor Casey, we now know that [Spoiler alert!]  their relationship won’t last long into the season.

Olyphant currently plays Raylan Givens in FX’s Justified.

Other familiar faces set to take part in the Project this season include Glenn Howerton (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Adam Pally (Happy Endings), James Franco (General Hospital) and the former Mr. Kim Kardashian, Kris Humphries. Returning guest-stars Bill Hader (Saturday Night Live), Anders Holm (Workaholics) and Chloe Sevigny (Big Love) also are scheduled to appear.

The comedy returns to Fox on Tuesday, Sept. 17 at 9:30/8:30c.

    I have never watched this show- but I will watch Olyphant in ANYTHING. He does not get enough love for Justified.

    Timothy Olyphant ♥

  3. Cassandra says:

    God, she gets some of the best guest stars to date her. Love the show, love Timothy Olyphant(he had me at Go), couldn’t be happier about this news.

  4. MollyFaraday says:

    Extra funny because of him appearing on The Office and Kelly saying “F*** me.” when she looks at him

  5. nicole says:

    all the white guys

  6. Ruby says:

    I think I heard that Mindy has a gigantic crush on him, so I really hope she gets to make out with him! If I suddenly became an actress who could cast whoever I wanted, Jared Padalecki would be my top pick. And then Robert Kazinsky and Jay Ryan.

  7. Zach says:

    This guy was really funny as Wesley on The League.

  8. Julie Pham says:

    awe it’s sad I thought her and the pastor guy were cute together

    He’s not a paper salesman, he’s a male model! Loved him on TO, and I’m sure he’ll be amazing here too!

    Haha. Mindy Kaling has a huge crush on Timothy Olyphant so I’m sure this casting was done with that thought in mind. That’s how he got his guest part on The Office. She wrote him into the show. Really, who can blame her though. If I had the kind of power to write Timothy Olyphant into shows as my love interest, that would be all I would ever do.

  11. liz says:

    *I* have a crush on him so I’m glad to see Mindy will get to play that out :P. Great casting choice.

  12. Nicole says:

    One more reason to love the 13 episode cable seasons. Actors aren’t so busy they can’t show up in guest spots on other shows. Love when TO gets to do some straight up comedy. Can’t wait.

    I want new ‘Deadwood’ on TV. NOW!
