Let’s All Continue Pretending We’re Best Friends With Mindy Kaling


This New York Times profile cements our already healthy admiration for Mindy Kaling. For one thing, she writes scripts while sitting at Johnny Rockets. A woman of the people! The article touches on her skill at navigating the “central contradiction of her career thus far, which is that she is a smart, ambitious woman who has excelled in the still-macho arena of comedy at the same time that she’s most widely recognized for playing the part of a materialistic, ditzy customer-service rep.” And her new show for NBC might feature her as a gossipy OB/GYN based on her mom, which sounds kind of amazing.
