Meet Dr. Mindy Lahiri’s (temporary) replacement. After two back-to-back drama turns post-Raising Hope, Garret Dillahunt is returning to comedy with a major recurring role on the upcoming fourth season of The Mindy Project at its new home, Hulu.

He will play Jody, a new doctor who replaces Mindy while she goes on maternity leave. Jody is a charming southern gentleman with extremely traditional values who thinks that Mindy is a tacky idiot.

Dillahunt, repped by D2 Management and UTA, co-stars opposite Ron Perlman and Dana Delaney in Amazon’s new drama series, Hand Of God, and he also recently had a big recurring role on the final season of FX drama Justified. He is currently shooting two features, Rounding Third, opposite John C. McGinley, and Come And Find Me, opposite Aaron Paul.
