Fall TV Preview

Mindy Project: Joseph Gordon-Levitt Tapped for Trippy Season 4 Premiere

Joseph Gordon-Levitt The Mindy Project

Dr. Lahiri will soon have the best of both worlds.

The Mindy Project has recruited Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Dark Knight Rises) for its Season 4 premiere, BuzzFeed reports.

Inspired by the 1998 film Sliding Doors — in which Gwyneth Paltrow’s character lives out two different scenarios after getting fired from her job — the Mindy Project premiere will find the titular doc living in an alternate reality. There, she is married to Gordon-Levitt’s Matt, a charismatic reality show producer for Bravo. (But what becomes of Danny?!)

In addition to such TV credits as 3rd Rock From the Sun and Numb3rs, Gordon-Levitt also has his own show, Hit Record on TV, airing on Pivot. (Fun fact: Mindy Kaling and Chris Messina guest-starred on the Season 2 premiere.)

The Mindy Project‘s super-sized fourth season will debut on Hulu later this year.
