Mindy Kaling recently dished about Timothy Olyphant’s upcoming guest appearance on The Mindy Project. When the Mindy Project premiered, Kaling had a wish list of men to guest star. Olyphant was at the top of the list.
Now her wish has come true and Mindy will be romancing our favorite lawman this season. Olyphant will play a middle aged skateboarder (yes you read that right) who woos Mindy.
Mindy told the Hollywood Crush earlier this month, “Well, Tim is like so funny. He came up doing standup, so no one knows how funny he is ‘cause he plays essentially modern day cowboys in a lot of the stuff he does. Or, actual cowboys like in ‘Deadwood.’ But he’s in all these excellent dramas and he’s so good at them and gets awards for them,” she told MTV News. “But he’s also just like a super-funny dude. So we have him playing this part. He’s basically our take on a Tony Hawk-type skateboarder, like a middle-aged skateboarder, we decided was like a funny [role].”

Mindy revealed that Tim is a good skateboarder. It seems he used to skate to his classes during his days at USC.
“And, of course, he did it effortlessly, which is so irritating when you’re already that good-looking,” she added. “But, yeah, so he was so good and so funny.
We look forward to some swoon worthy love scenes. There is not nearly enough of those on Justified!
