Here's the thing about missing your favorite TV show. Sometimes you miss it so much, just the idea of what might happen between two actors when a new one is cast and can make you all tingly and giggly. Case in point!

The Mindy Project has cast It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia  star Rob Mcelhenny to play the cousin of Morgan, Ike Barinholtz. Both characters are weird, both actors are high-larious, and the idea of both actors together is pretty much making our Thursday right now.

 Ike, of course, is a fan favorite on  the Fox hitcom (don't make us tell you for the 85th time you're an idiot for not watching), and Rob is a fan favorite on Sunny. Rob will appear in the premiere episode as Cousin Lou Tookers, a recent hire to the office who is supposed to be fixing the computers. He's a "sunburt criminal type, hot but sleazy."

"Hot But Sleazy." We want Ike and Rob to start a band.

In other tingle-worthy (that's not a word) news, The Mindy Project is officially back in production and the actors are back on set, as evidenced by the tweet TMP writer David Stassen sent out…

 We don't know what's happening with Mindy Kaling's face, but we're thinking it's nothing a little dance performance by Chris Messina can't fix. In fact, we're pretty sure it can fix all the world's problems.
