Add another name to the list of Hollywood leading men appearing on The Mindy Project. BuzzFeed News reported Friday that Joseph Gordon-Levitt will guest star in the show’s season four premiere as...Mindy’s husband?

For confused fans who know that Mindy Lahiri's (Mindy Kaling) serious beau on the show is actually Danny Castellano (Chris Messina), BuzzFeed explains that the premiere episode will take a look at the alt-reality version of Lahiri’s life, Sliding Doors-style.

In this alternate life, Mindy is married to Gordon-Levitt’s character Matt, a debonair reality show producer for Bravo.

It’s a quid pro quo appearance for Kaling, who appeared with Messina on the season two premiere of Gordon-Levitt’s crowd-sourced Pivot series Hit Record.

The Mindy Project was cancelled by Fox in May, but later resurrected by Hulu. Season four will premiere later this year.
