TVLine Items: Eliza Coupe on Mindy, Whose Line Renewed and More

Eliza Coupe The Mindy Project

It looks like The Mindy Project‘s Morgan is getting a happy ending of his own.

Eliza Coupe (Happy Endings, Benched) has nabbed a one-episode guest star stint on the Fox-turned-Hulu comedy’s upcoming fourth season, TVLine has confirmed.

No word yet on who Coupe will play, but judging by the actress’ Instagram photo from the Mindy set, her character will be getting up close and personal with Ike Barinholtz’s quirky alter ego.


The Mindy Project premieres Tuesday, Sept. 15, on Hulu.
