When Mindy knew Pace’s character, Alex, he was a nerdy college student. Now, he’s a millionaire (and rather good-looking, to boot).

Pace, who currently stars in AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire, is booked for only one episode as of now. (Read: He probably won’t pose a giant threat to Danny and Mindy’s relationship.)

Pace is the latest in the rom-com’s roster of Season 3 guest stars, which also includes Save the Last Dance‘s Julia Stiles, Fargo‘s Allison Tolman and Getting On‘s Niecy Nash.
