Lee Pace has signed on to appear on ‘The Mindy Project.’
The 35-year-old actor will appear on season three of the Fox comedy. He is set to portray Alex, a character E! Online describes as a “handsome San Francisco tech millionaire who took Mindy’s virginity back when he was a dorky college student.”
Lee Pace is best known for portraying Ned on ABC series Pushing Daisies, and also appeared in The Good Shepherd, Lincoln and Guardians of the Galaxy. The actor portrayed Thranduil in the first two Hobbit movies, and will reprise the role in The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.
Season three was originally set to air only 15 episodes, but Fox ordered six new episodes of the comedy this week. It airs Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m. ET, immediately after the hit comedy, New Girl.
