The Mindy Project’s Ike Barinholtz has a new book in the works. According to Entertainment Weekly, Grand Central Publishing is set to publish an untitled collection of essays by Barinholtz that will be available with an audio version as well. The essays will “chronicle Barinholtz’s journey from Chicago as a ‘street thug’ to a ‘Tea Party activist and reality show watcher’” and “appeal to anyone hoping to cook up ‘delicious, heart-healthy crockpot recipes.’” Barinholtz also stars in Paula Pell’s film Sisters due out this Christmas and will write and costar in an upcoming film called Balls with Amy Poehler.
“I’m thrilled to be able to share my thoughts with the world, and my piping hot takes will cover all the bases: Comedy, showbiz, sex, Hollywood, the Chicago Bulls of the ’90s, sex and drugs, movies, politics, the ‘Biz,’ pizza and travel, religion and entertainment,” Barinholtz said on the news. “I just want people to say, ‘OH! THAT GUY! YEAH, HE’S FUNNY, I’LL BUY HIS BOOK, WHAT THE HELL, I’VE GOT LIKE A FIVE HOUR FLIGHT.’” The book is due out in fall 2017.
