There's nothing scarier than an ex-wife. Unless that ex-wife also once played the resident nymphomaniac on American Horror Story.

Chloe Sevigny has been cast on The Mindy Project for a multi-episode arc as Danny's ex-wife, Christina, TVLine reports.

TV Scorecard: What's renewed? What's canceled?

Christina is described as a well-traveled war photographer who's been with some intimidating men in foreign locales — which obviously makes the normally masculine, confident Danny (Chris Messina) insecure. Christina is excited for a romantic dinner with Danny but is disappointed when something suddenly comes up.

Danny's oft-mentioned by never seen ex-wife will appear in at least three episodes of the freshman comedy beginning in April. The casting comes on the heels of The Mindy Project's second-season renewal, which was announced Monday along with pick-ups for The Following, New Girl and Raising Hope.

Since her Golden Globe-winning turn on Big Love, Sevigny has guest-starred on Law & Order: SVU, Louie, Portlandia and American Horror Story: Asylum.

The Mindy Project airs Tuesdays at 9:30/8:30c on Fox. Are you excited to meet Danny's ex-wife?
