Greta Gerwig is taking her talents to the small screen to guest-star on an episode of Hulu’s The Mindy Project, EW can exclusively reveal. The actress will play one of Mindy’s (Mindy Kaling) patients carrying a big secret about Danny (Chris Messina).
Gerwig previously worked with Kaling on 2011’s No Strings Attached, a romantic comedy where the two played the main character’s (Natalie Portman) friends. More recently, she starred and co-wrote 2015’s Mistress America and 2013’s Frances Ha. She’s next headlining Maggie’s Plan, out this May, alongside Ethan Hawke, Bill Hader, and Maya Rudolph.
Hulu hasn’t set a date for Gerwig’s appearance, but the show returns for the second half of its fourth season April 12.
