I did a double-take when I first read the news, too. The recent news broke my heart at first, but after further investigation, it seems that there is still hope for Mindy and Danny.
According to Mindy Kaling, who recently found a new home for her show on Hulu, JGL will be joining The Mindy Project for one episode set in the future. It'll be one of those episodes that jumps forward in time in a sort of alternate-reality scenario. In this case, the episode will shows what Mindy's life would be like if she'd never dated Danny. That life doesn't sound too bad either because it involves being married to JGL.
Now that I know that Mindy and Danny still stand a chance, I can just continue to awe Mindy for her incredible guest stars. From Seth Rogen to Seth Meyers, she's so immersed in the comedy world that pretty much any funny guy will happily play her love interest. How awesome would that be!??!
I'm interested to see JGL on the show. He's a funny guy but isn't exactly known for his comedy roles. I'm excited to see where this goes, and I bet Fox is regretting it's decision to cancel The Mindy Project right about now.
