Chloe Sevigny will guest star on 'The Mindy Project'.

The 38-year-old actress will portray Danny Castellano's (Chris Messina) ex wife Christina, a war photographer who makes an unexpected return to his life in a bid to give their relationship another chance.

According to E! Online, Chloe will make her debut on the 22nd episode of the first season of the show, which has just been renewed for a second series.

Last year Chloe played Mia, a pre-op transgender hitman, in TV series 'Hit & Miss', but she admitted she was concerned that she wouldn't be able to do the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community justice in the role.

She said: ''I was worried people would be angry that they didn't cast a real person who was transitioning. I asked why they didn't, and the producers said they didn't find the right person. It's a big responsibility toward that community, and I wanted to do them right.''

Chloe - who has previously starred in psychological thriller 'The Killing Room' and mystery film 'Zodiac' on the big screen - also hit out at Hollywood for ''not liking'' her, and insisted that is the reason she is cast in ''seemingly difficult movies''.

She added: ''Hollywood does not know what to do with me. They do not like me. That's why I end up in these seemingly difficult movies. That's what is offered to me, and I need to make a living.''
