And Mindy Kaling's fictional love life continues to inspire fits of jealousy everywhere!

Justified's leading man Timothy Olyphant is set to guest star on season two of The Mindy Project, E! News has confirmed. Olyphant is set to play a wild professional skateboarder who almost runs our heroine Mindy Lahiri over in Union Square in the Fox hit sitcom's fifth episode. Meet-cute? More like meet-dangerous!

"Raylan Givens is coming to #themindyproject," Kaling tweeted on Tuesday of her latest on-screen love interest. (And the Emmy for best love interest casting goes to Kaling!)

SCOOP: It's Always Sunny star set to woo Mindy in season two, too!

In addition to playing Raylan Givens on FX's hit series Justified, Olyphant is best known for his work on Deadwood and Damages and has guest starred on The Office and The League. The Los Angeles Times first reported the news of his casting on The Mindy Project.

Olyphant isn't the first big guest star The Mindy Project has landed for its sophomore outing: James Franco is set to guest star as Mindy's replacement at Shulman & Associates, Happy Endings' Adam Pally is also playing a new doctor, Kris Humphries is guesting as himself and we exclusively reported that It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia star and creator Glenn Howerton will also woo Mindy after her split from Pastor Casey (Anders Holm).

While Mindy and Casey return from their year-long trip to Haiti still together, their relationship won't last long as Kaling recently revealed that her character "gets to be single again pretty soon, which is fun." Yes indeed!

The Mindy Project season two premieres Sept. 17 at 9:30 p.m. on Fox.
