'The Mindy Project': Ike Barinholtz calls tonight's show 'our most R-rated episode to date' -- LISTEN!
The Mindy Project is back tonight with an hour-long episode (Fox at 9 p.m. ET) that finds Mindy (Mindy Kaling) not only dealing with the aftermath of her kiss with Danny (Chris Messina) and the start of a possible new relationship, but also with an incriminating video of herself that has surfaced on the Internet.
Phoning in to Entertainment Weekly Radio’s EW Morning Live, co-star Ike Barinholtz, who pitched the initial idea that led to the video story line, teased the tape thusly: “The worst possible tape you could make is one with Bill Hader, I think, because his character on our show is a subhuman degenerate.” He also told hosts Dalton Ross and Jessica Shaw that the hour is “our most R-rated episode to date.” Listen below.

The Mindy Project is back next week! I repeat: The Mindy Project is back next week!
We’ve been patiently waiting for our Shulman & Associates fix since January, but enough is enough. After the midseason finale fireworks — as Mindy flew back to New York to get Cliff back, Danny grabbed her for a passionate mile-high make-out sesh — it’s a wonder we haven’t combusted from the anticipation. To help you hold out one more week, the Mindy cast hit PaleyFest at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre on Tuesday night for a revealing and laugh-filled panel.
Even though the show’s called The Mindy Project, audiences and critics agree that its breakout character is Morgan Tookers (Ike Barinholtz): a goofy nurse who just happens to be an ex-con. So it’s no surprise that Morgan stars in a set of new Mindy Project webisodes — called, appropriately enough, “The Morgan Project.”
According to Barinholtz himself, though, Morgan’s popularity wasn’t the only factor in getting these online-only clips made. “I gave the writer’s assistants gift certificates to Tony Roma’s, and they were kind enough to make Morgan the focus of the webisodes (a small episode of television that airs on the world wide web),” he tells EW. “They focus on Morgan’s ‘game,’ which is poor to very poor.”
Case in point: In this first clip, Mindy (Mindy Kaling) finds herself roped into evaluating Morgan’s kissing skills when he asks her for dating advice. “To loosen up the mood before the kiss we made the entire crew kiss,” Barinholtz says. “We’re looking at a pretty big lawsuit.”
