Tag: Mindy Kaling (1-10 of 29)
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.
You might know Larenz Tate as Malcolm from House of Lies or Bart from Rescue Me, but very soon, you’ll be calling him Tracy.
EW has learned exclusively that Tate has landed a guest-starring role on The Mindy Project‘s second season. Tate will play Tracy Whitfield, a politician currently running for Congress who seems to butt heads with Mindy on a few issues. However, Tracy has a few tricks up his sleeve, the main one being his undeniable charm.
When Mindy Kaling joined us for a Google+ hangout last week, she mentioned Tate as one of a few “fun guys coming up” on the show. Watch the video of her complete hangout below:

At noon ET today, The Mindy Project‘s Mindy Kaling joined EW’s Laura Hertzfeld for a Google hangout to talk all about season 2 of the comedy. Luckily for those involved, 30 Rock writer-turned-Mindy staffer (and recent Emmy winner) Tracey Wigfield joined the fun as well. The co-workers reminisced about Wigfield’s guest appearance on last season of Mindy, revealed how they met (Twitter love!), and played one round of shag-marry-kill with B.J. Novak, James Franco, and Seth Rogen. And that all happened in the last 10 minutes.
So just in case you missed it, here’s a quick rundown of some of the highlights from the entire half-hour hangout:

Spoiler alert: In the first episode of The Mindy Project‘s second season, all of our heroine’s problems are solved forever.
Er… maybe not. But at least you won’t have to wait any longer to see how things quickly get messy again. Today, Fox posted an early preview of Mindy‘s second season premiere online — one week before its Sept. 17 broadcast debut. The episode — titled “All My Problems Solved Forever” — follows Mindy (Mindy Kaling) to Haiti, where she’s struck by a sudden ailment. It also features a guest turn by James Franco as Dr. Paul Leotard, whose name is enough to build anticipation.
When The Mindy Project returns for its second season, a lot has changed. Mindy (Mindy Kaling) is in Haiti, and Dr. Paul Leotard (James Franco) has taken her place at Shulman & Associates. And when she gets back to New York, Mindy goes toe-to-toe with the handsome and well-liked doctor to regain her spot in the practice.
We learn about this development and much more in this exclusive three-minute-plus featurette, which includes new footage from season 2 and interviews with Kaling, Franco, Chris Messina (Danny), and more. Take a look:

Fox just made our alternate-TV-universe gal-pal dreams come true. Haven’t you ever imagined what would happen if your favorite female protagonists crossed over into each other’s shows? And what it would be like to have Mindy Kaling on relationship speed dial?
Fox is rolling out a series of character mash-up videos called Smash Chat in which Dr. Mindy Lahiri (Kaling, The Mindy Project) intercepts a phone call between Danny (Chris Messina, The Mindy Project) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel, The New Girl) and girl-crushes on Dr. Brennan (Emily Deschanel, Bones).
In the first video, see the queens of quirky-cute, Mindy and Jess, in a not-so-cute missed connection call.

Fans of Mindy Kaling won’t have to wait for the return of The Mindy Project in September to catch her on the small screen. Kaling is set to guest judge on this week’s Top Chef Masters, challenging the chefs to create dishes inspired by — in true Mindy Lahiri fashion — her favorite romantic comedies.
In the clip below, the unabashed fan of chick flicks presents the chefs with movie tickets, each listing a film she loves. The chefs must then put together a dish that represents the film–a somewhat difficult task for movies with a not-so-romantic mood. “I’ve never been pregnant and I’ve never been stoned,” chef Sue Zemanick says after selecting Knocked Up.

The Mindy Project‘s casting department has hit another home run.
EW can confirm that Justified star Timothy Olyphant is going to take a break from playing tough-as-nails U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens to guest star on the Fox comedy as … a professional skateboarder. Per the Los Angeles Times, his character is named Graham Logan, a wild pro boarder who “nearly runs Mindy over in Union Square before asking her out on a date.”
The episode is set to air sometime early during the show’s sophomore run, which kicks off Sept. 17.
Things are going to get a little Sunnier on The Mindy Project.
EW has confirmed that It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia creator, producer, and star Glenn Howerton, who plays Dennis on the long-running FX (now FXX) comedy, is going to guest-star on the second season of Mindy Kaling’s sophomore comedy. He’ll recur starting in the fourth episode, playing Cliff Gilbert, an attorney who ends up having a meet-cute with Mindy.
Howerton joins an already impressive list of season 2 guest stars, which includes James Franco and Happy Endings alum Adam Pally. Last week, Kaling teased Franco’s appearance, referring to his character, Dr. Paul Leotard, as her “nemesis.”
Also last week, Kaling graced the cover of EW, helming our report on New Hollywood.
